The home page leads with the news that President Barack Obama has moved his speech on jobs to Thursday night after Speaker John Boehner cried foul over him scheduling it against the Republican presidential debate to be held next Wednesday. Also high on the page is the report on Vermont's treasured covered bridges, many of which were destroyed in Hurricane Irene. Our top pick: the report that the bones of Australian outlaw Ned Kelly have been identified.
World: You can probably skip the latest update from Libya, where Muammar Qaddafi's son is denying the latest rebel claims that they've cornered the former dictator. Rather, read about the former rapper who's worrying German officials with his new message of jihad.
