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 front page leads with an in-depth look at Republicans' new Achilles heel, Medicare. The increasingly more prominent news over the morning has been Serbia's reported capture of the war crimes fugitive Ratco Mladic. The story to read today, though is the report on African immigrants in Spain.

World: Do not miss the excellent report on African immigrants living in tent cities in the Spanish forest. Also of interest is the news, reported mostly in publications overseas, that Muammar Qaddafi has allegedly stashed billions of dollars worth of Libyan treasure in Western banks.

U.S.: The multimedia feature Coming Out has been up for most of the week, but today it leads the section, which is a good enough reason to point you to it with enthusiasm. Also, following the deadly tornadoes of the last few weeks, people in susceptible areas are rushing to install storm shelters.

Business: Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is looking for a buyer, or at least an investor, to help it expand, though that's hardly an exclusive. More interesting is the ethical question raised on the You're the Boss blog, about partnering with a company whose products you may oppose, like a cigarette maker.

Technology: Adding a little glitz to TechCrunch, wunderkind investor Ashton Kutcher stopped by the conference to talk about picking companies. And, in a piece borrowed from Style, the National Design Awards recognized the man who created typefaces for Microsoft Word, among others.

Science: New fuel economy stickers for new cars debuted yesterday, though you can catch that story (and the controversy over dropping a letter-grade system) here as well. Far more worth your click is the mesmerizing account of diving for artifacts in underground pools in Belize.

Health: Wow, actual medical advice: Dr. James Palmer offers sinus-clearing tips. And if you're sweating about being "bikini ready," take a look at Catherine Saint Louis's piece for a little perspective.

Sports: In your playoff story, the Mavericks roll over the Thunder. And a Mets sale has apparently gone through, to a buyer who will own less than half of the team.

Opinion: In the lead op-ed, cardiologist and editor Rita Redberg gives bullet-point examples of where Medicare wastes money.

Arts: It's a big television week, with a wrap-up of American Idol (winner: American Idol) and a farewell to Oprah Winfrey.

Style: Home and Garden talked to some designers about what lightbulbs to use with incandescents on the way out.
