The home page leads with news that the New York Attorney General is investigating three banks for their roles in the fiscal crisis of 2008. And in an interesting follow-up to the arrest of IMF director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the feature on the French culture of silence around the indiscretions of public figures is worth a look. But for sheer (shear?) weirdness, you can't beat the crime trend story about thieves targeting extension hair in beauty shops.
World: The lead story on France struggling to come to grips with the arrest of one of its leading politicians is worth a read if you haven't already caught the European side of the story. And then there are the reports of two different women who have come forward with reports of coercion and attempted rape by Strauss-Kahn. Outside that ongoing saga and breaking news such as the Irish pipe bomb, the story to catch is this feature on women at the helms of Filipino newsrooms.
U.S.: The big national news is obviously that Arnold Schwarzenegger has a child outside his marriage, but since that's just an AP report so far, you don't need to spend a click on it (try the LA Times instead). Rather, check out this funny crime trend feature on surprisingly valuable hair extensions, or the surprisingly good economic news that California has halved its debt.
