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 Solyndra affair, and how the U.S. government missed some key warning signs of a troubled company in its rush to assist the now-bankrupt solar panel maker. Also high on the page: The House has passed a stopgap spending bill after rejecting a similar version 30 hours earlier, but majority Democrats in the Senate have signaled their opposition. But regardless of the rest of the paper, we've been holding our breath for the Moneyball review, which came in on Friday as a rave.
World: Check out the excellent coverage of the ongoing U.N. general assembly, where Turkish Prime Ministar Tayyip Erdogan was less than complimentary about Israel, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hard on the United States, prompting a walkout as in years past. Another story well worth the click: The account of a Chinese rape case, and the difficulty in bringing such prosecution in the rapidly developing nation.
U.S.: There's a whole series on the shifting voter demographics in the Jewish population, with reports from Florida, Pennsylvania, and Los Angeles, but for a quick summary of the issue, click to the short series leader. And just because the news is so strange, click over to the story about Texas canceling last meals for its condemned inmates.
Business: Amid all the gloomy economic news, the lead story on a General Motors plant reopening in Tennessee will come as a welcome respite. And if you missed Thursday's Facebook announcement, there's a recap in Tech, with a look at the company as an arbiter of taste.
Sports: With the American League West title in the bag for the Yankees, check out the lead feature on two of the game's worst performing teams, the Red Sox and the Braves. And in an uncomfortable issue for football, read up on the new scrutiny into the New York Giants' tendency toward faking injuries.
Opinion: The lead op-ed takes the form of a video on the famine in Somalia, by Women Without Men director Shirin Neshat.
Arts: The review of Thursday night's New York City Ballet debut of the Paul McCartney production Ocean's Kingdom hasn't come in yet (hopefully it's in the pipe -- The Telegraph has one in the meantime), but there is one for the newly debuted Moneyball, which critic Manohla Dargis quite likes.
Travel: On the first day of autumn, an armchair visit to Perugia, Italy, seems just about right, so check out the 36 Hours feature on the city.
