Now that the New York Times is behind a paywall, you have to make extra special, careful use of your 20 free articles every month. (Or, you could learn how to delete everything after the ".html" in the URL, but let’s assume you’re good, law-abiding people who would never dream of such a thing.) The Atlantic wants to help, and that’s where the Trimming the Times series comes from—the good folks at The Atlantic Wire are scouring the paper every morning and culling only the stories really worth your clicks. It’s a useful summary of the day’s news, plus links to the stories worth more reading. From today’s edition:
World: You should read the profile of Turkish Prime Minister Recap Tayyip Erdogan, and the political landscape he "transcends." Also well worth a click is the piece about three Mexico City architects blithely working to build new parks amid the sprawl. And there’s a report on the IAEA’s finding that Japan underestimated the danger of a tsunami to its Fukushima nuclear plant, but of course that’s available elsewhere.
Super useful, whether you’re trying to save your clicks or just want to get the gist of the day’s news.
