Now that the New York Times pay wall is live, you only get 20 free clicks a month. For those worried about hitting their limit, we're taking a look through the paper each morning to find the stories that can make your clicks count.

The lead today gets around to the question, in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden, about whether the victorious ends justified questionable means, such as waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques." Also, see the lead of the World section for a very cool automotive report from war-torn Libya.

World: In one of the cooler reports he has filed, C.J. Chivers takes us inside the secret Libyan workshops where they turn regular pickup trucks into machine gun-toting monsters straight out of Road Warrior. Also, it looks like the questions over what Pakistan knew and when it knew it aren't going away, but rather causing rising tension.

U.S.: A new natural disaster enters the national pages -- the drought plaguing cities like Boise, Idaho throughout the Great Plains. And in further Bin Laden news, the killing of the terrorist leader has led to an upswell in patriotism on college campuses.

Business: Portugal has gotten its bailout, but that story is available all over the place. There's also a look at China's big investment push, also available elsewhere. It may be more worthwhile to spend your click on this look at cash-strapped federal regulators patrolling Wall Street.

Technology: Google is planning a series of primetime commercials, which is interesting, but they did announce a similar thing a couple of years ago, so you know, cycles. Also, there's an app for calling a car service, which is weird when you think about it since you can already use your phone to do that.

Science: It appears a study on dialects has provided a clue to the origin of the Japanese people.

Health: A new study says low-salt diets aren't as good for you as once thought.

Sports: Derek Jeter is off to a weak start with the Yankees. But we'd rather read about the struggling growth of Major League Soccer.

Opinion: Soldier and author Matt Gallagher has the lead op-ed, reminiscing about the times he imagined his platoon killing Osama bin Laden. And Thomas Friedman links oil and terrorism.

Arts: Music fans will want to check out the preview of Odd Future's album. Also, the feature on an expansive art class spanning the Southwest is fascinating.

Dining and Wine: Continuing the back-to-basics trend of recent years, some farmers are starting to use oxen once more. And in New York, hipsters descend on a subway line for a six-course lunch.
