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 home page leads with a banner story on that hurricane bearing down on the East Coast, where North Carolinians are stocking up on generators and New Yorkers are reluctantly canceling beach plans. Also high on the page, Nate Silver calculates the possible cost of Hurricane Irene. Our top pick: The report on rampant theft of rhinoceros horns from European museums.
World: The lead story, reported from a Tripoli hospital where the steady stream of wounded attests to the fighting still claiming lives, is well worth your click. So is the report on a Syrian political cartoonist beaten severely for making fun of President Bashar al-Assad in his work. And the story about thieves targeting European museums' rhinoceros horns is a great report about a little-known problem, but sort of depressing.
U.S.: Check out the report from Columbus, New Mexico, where a government raid nearly a century after the famous Pancho Villa raid turned many of the town's leaders into criminal defendants, rattling a community "on the edge of extinction." The story about a newly refurbished Los Angeles River, on which people actually kayak, is also worth your click.
