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 report on the White House's questioning of just how much latitude the United States has to kill Islamist militants in places like Yemen and Somalia, which will bear on the overall war on terrorism. Also high on the page: Approval rates for Congress have matched record lows, according to a New York Times / CBS poll. Our top choice today: The heavy dose of nostalgia that comes with the 20-year anniversary feature on Nirvana's Nevermind.
World: The feature on Bahrain "boiling under the lid of repression" reminds us that the unrest of the Arab Spring, and the counterrevolutionary measures, still rage on in many areas. And in a bit of deadly spy drama involving poison needles, one North Korean defector has killed another, who had lead a Seoul-based activist group called Fighters for Free North Korea.
U.S.: The lead story, checking in on Seattle 20 years after the release of Nirvana's Nevermind, is well worth your click, not for the modern scene report it promises but barely touches on, but for the full-fledged romp down memory lane that it provides. And check out the report, which The Times covers much more in-depth than most, of a research project in Baltimore that allegedly knowingly exposed black children to hazardous lead dust in the 1990s.
