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.
Today's home page leads with a report that British Prime Minister David Cameron has called for an extended session of Parliament to deal with the News International phone hacking crisis. Also high on the page, analysis by Times media writer David Carr, who points to News International's culture of throwing money at its problems. But some of the best coverage in today's paper is the lengthy report about a unique new court program for veterans.
World: The lead story, on newly free health care in Sierra Leone, points out an interesting trend in sub-Saharan African medicine, which has lately become more accessible. And the story about conflicting reports of a possible Hosni Mubarak coma is not unique, but it is fairly comprehensive. Also, a Mexico City Journal report on a new light installation at the Foreign Ministry evokes post-colonial expression and city pride.
U.S.: The reporting on national pessimism over the budget debate is fine, but you can get the debt story just about anywhere. Rather, check out A.G. Sulzberger's meditation on the human relationship with water, even in flood-ravaged areas. And the report on a special criminal court program for soldiers makes for a good read about a novel approach to helping combat veterans.
Business: Check out the report on the normally secretive high-frequency traders who are working to shed their shifty image. Also, if you're following the European debt crisis, the analysis looking beyond last week's stress test results is well worth a read.
Technology: The story to read here is the report on Twitter's increasingly contentious relationship with those who make apps for the micro-blogging service.
Sports: It's not the U.S. victory we had hoped for stateside, but Japan's Women's World Cup win is still a righteous triumph, and the game story is well worth the click.
Opinion: As California's prison inmate hunger strike continues, Colin Dayan argues that the solitary confinement against which they are protesting is, in fact, cruel and unusual.
Arts: The review of the Royal Shakespeare Company's performance of King Lear suggests a less-wrenching-than-usual rendition of the classic tragedy.
