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.
Obviously this morning's coverage is dominated by news of Osama Bin Laden's death. The main story on the death that ran on the front page of the paper edition continues to blare across the top of the home page. Related coverage fills the entire home page. One of the most interesting stories follows the initial lead through the CIA investigation that resulted in yesterday's raid.
World: The Bin Laden coverage that dominates almost all of today's news pervades the international section in particular. Some top clicks would be this biography of the terrorist leader and this analysis piece on how the assassination will affect U.S. relations with Pakistan. Elsewhere in the world, the report on the Western allies defense of more destructive air strikes in Libya is worth a look, and conservationists will be interested to read about sharks in Palau, which officials are realizing are worth more alive than dead.
U.S.: Continuing the Bin Laden coverage, Jeff Zeleny offers some analysis on how the victory will boost President Barack Obama's approval rating in foreign policy. And in Alabama, devastated communities head to damaged or destroyed churches on the first Sunday after last week's tornadoes.
Business: The lead story, and the most click-worthy, looks at Shell's years of effort to persuade federal regulators, Alaskan state regulators, and locals to allow it to drill new wells in the Arctic Ocean. Also, there's word that Chrysler has turned its first profit since it declared bankruptcy two years ago, but you can save a click and get that news elsewhere.
Technology: The lead story, about military uses for consumer electronics (both as recruiting tools and in the field), is definitely worth a click.
Science: Tilapia goes under the microscope. The recently popular fish is easy to farm, but lacks some nutrients of other fish and its cultivation can be damaging to the environment.
Opinion: In today's lead op-ed, author Mark Moyar examines the United States' role as "kingmaker" in nations turned by revolution.
Arts: The return to New York of the Insane Clown Posse gives us a look at the oft-maligned subculture of their fans, who call themselves juggalos.
