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's lead story, on the rising Islamist influence in newly liberated Libya, is a great piece of reporting and a good read--well worth the click. Also high on the page, and a favorite of The Atlantic Wire's: the official review of the Willem de Kooning retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.
World: The story on Palestine's bid for statehood with the United Nations provides a good check-in for the ongoing struggle there, and is worth your click. And the story on Italy's entrenched jobs-for-votes system is worth reading to understand better what, exactly, austerity might mean there.
U.S.: Check out the lead story--an update long in coming--on the split among immigration advocates over the ongoing boycott of Arizona. And beyond the main national page, The Texas Tribune report on campuses researching veterans' brains to better serve veteran students is another good read.
Business: The story of a rogue UBS trader who lost $2 billion leads the section, but you can skip it and catch The Guardian's version as he was arrested in London anyway. There's a lot of news coming out of Greece's austerity effort and Europe's debt troubles, and the Economix blog post tying all that together is a good place to start.
