Trimming the Times: Remembering BP, Forgetting Donald Trump, and Mores

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.

On the top of the Times this morning is a don’t-miss story about gay students at Christian colleges. Skip the story on Standard & Poor’s wake-up call to the administration—it’s on every front page today. The paper’s coverage of Libya continues to be outstanding and this media rich reporton refugees humanizes the conflict. There are a number of oil spill stories as it’s a day shy of the one-year anniversary—conserve your clicks and just read this one.

World: Depending on your mood, you should start either with this piece about the region’s reaction to the continued U.S. presence in Afghanistan or this piece on Camilla at the Royal Wedding. You might also find this memo from Havana detailing the status quo in Cuba interesting. This look at Robert Mugabe’s intimidation tactics is also interesting.

U.S.: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s two vetoes—one killing a birther bill, the other a controversial gun law—will be covered by everyone. Instead, check out this well-done story of the recent Southern storms or this report about the ongoing campaign to keep online poker (and the lobbyists waging it). And if you’re at all like us, you just can’t get enough of the Francis Ford Coppola-like epic unfolding at the mob trials in New York.
