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 pair of stories about the Norwegian mass murderer leading The Times home page provide a sobering start to the week. Find brighter news down the page in the coverage of the first day of gay marriage in New York, complete with audio and photo slideshows. It's all economy news above the fold, though, with our top choice being the main article about children of the wealthy taking private planes to summer camp.

World: James Murdoch is struggling to keep himself out of hot water in the latest from the News Corp. phone hacking scandal. You might also check out Anthony Shadid's latest dispatch from Syria or explore the now sizable package of Norway coverage.

U.S.: A pair of quirky stories should catch your eye in the national section--one about a canoe race in Washington and one about a 100-year-old jazz trumpet player in New Orleans.

Business: Everybody's talking about David Carr's latest column on the Murdoch scandal. You can probably skip the coverage of Newsweek's interview with DSK's accuser, as it's up in full on the magazine's site. Meanwhile, the article on the head of Marvel studios is terrific.
Technology: The lead story on Apple in China helps put the viral phenomenon of the fake Apple store into context. Along those lines, there's a fascinating piece about Steve Jobs' primacy in the design process at Apple.
Sports: Don't miss the article about playing sports games in unusual locations. (The image of the Boston Bruins playing hockey in Fenway Park is not Photoshopped.) You might also want to check out how the NFL lockout is affecting rookie free agents.
Opinion: You've probably heard the references before, but Stephen Marche's guest column on Murdoch and Shakespeare is worthwhile, as is Virginia Heffernan's take on Google+.
Arts: Joe Caramanica compares Theophilus London to Jean-Michel Basquiat in Monday's accessible edition of Critic's Notebook. The review of Conquistadora, a new novel about Puerto Rico by Esmeralda Santiago is also compelling, if only to read about the author's struggle to learn how to write again after suffering a stroke.
