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 today with further reporting from yesterday's Wikileaks reveal of Guantanamo Bay documents. This time it's a profile of Saifullah Paracha, a New York travel agent who allegedly colluded with the 9/11 conspirators to carry out more terrorist attacks in the United States. It's pretty chilling, and one of the best reads in today's paper. Also, there's a fascinating peek into New York's underground Chinese gambling parlors, which have been the target of a spate of recent robberies.
World: In addition to the ongoing coverage of the Guantanamo documents, there's an update on Syria, where protests have been met with violence, and a follow-up on the ramifications of Monday's Taliban prison break. Also of interest, but sort of buried: India has arrested the man in charge of organizing last year's botched Commonwealth Games.
U.S.: Detroit leads the national section as the bellwether for cities cutting pensions in order to trim budgets. There's a good feature about female college athletes getting shortchanged under Title IX. Also, some revealing news has surfaced about manufacturing flaws in the Southwest jet that lost part of its roof on April 1, but it's no exclusive. Save a click by reading about it here or here.
New York: We don't always include this section, but a local crime story about a recent string of robberies in underground Chinese gambling parlors is too fascinating to pass up.
Business: The big news today is that Ford is reporting its most profitable quarter since 1998, but you can get that elsewhere. More interesting is this look at the effort to save the physical trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
Health: for a heartbreaking story with a scientific undercurrent, check out this report on the problems with getting breast milk to children in Haiti. For a look at the way some genes control the way we get sick, read this report.
Sports: Without many games to report, our intrepid sports team must produce a few features, and there's a good one about Manny Ramirez's rise to stardom.
Opinion: James Dubik, a retired army general, has the featured op-ed on why air strikes in Libya aren't enough. Also, an editorial on the Guantanamo documents implores President Barack Obama not to "compound Mr. Bush's mistakes."
