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.

Monday night's Republican debate grabs the home page's top spots, with the lead report looking at the GOP elite's support turning to Mitt Romney as Rick Perry gains ground. Outside the debate coverage, another prominently placed feature looks at the role of women in Libya's revolution. And we're very excited by the news that a newly discovered planet may contain liquid water and even be habitable.

World: Some breaking headlines here are worth the click, including the report that the U.K. News of the World hacking inquiry will recall James Murdoch to testify and the news of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul. The report on the Hague being asked to investigate the Vatican for sex abuse is widely available so you can get it elsewhere. And a report from Nairobi, Kenya, demonstrates the desperate poverty in that part of the world, as a leaking fuel line drew a crowd hoping for some free gasoline, then exploded.

U.S.: The lead report, on a Minnesota suburb's public discussion on anti-gay bullying in its schools, is well worth the click. So is the feature on the juxtaposed and different memorial libraries of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, in Southern California. And check out a little more debate coverage, in which the Republican field goes after Rick Perry over his views on Social Security.

Business: The lead story is worth a look, about investors on both sides of the Atlantic shying away from lending to troubled Euorpean banks. In more local news, check out the report from Detroit, where a two-tiered wage system, in which some workers make half as much as their counterparts and are glad to get it, is spiking employment.

Science: After the media frenzy over the double-whammy of Hurricane Irene and the Virginia earthquake has cooled, the feature about scientists studying the quake addresses some interesting issues about the East Coast's seismology. But perhaps the most exciting story from this section is the report on a newly discovered planet that's the right distance away from its start to have liquid water, and therefore may be habitable.

Health: Two fascinating articles should get your clicks: one on an experimental cancer treatment that uses the body's immune system, and appears to work. In the other, a study has found testosterone in males lowers after they have kids, to give them a more paternal instinct to stay at home with the family.

Sports: With the U.S. Open wrapping up, check out the coverage of Novak Djokovic's victory in the men's final. Also, the story on Nascar's attempt to go green is pretty interesting.

Opinion: In the lead op-ed, law professor Jeffrey Rosen argues that an upcoming Supreme Court case about evidence gathered without a proper warrant weighs heavily on Americans' right to anonymity in public.

Arts: Check out the Q&A with Martha Plimpton, nominated for an Emmy award for her role in Raising Hope.
