Re Gene's forwarding of the review of the NY Times site--
currently internat'l (i.e., non-US visitors) can get a 30 day free trial
subscription at
which point they start charging $35 US a month. (well you get a 50%
discount off that)

This little snippet came from their subscription page:
http://www.nytimes.com/subscribe/sub-bin/new_sub.cgi

"New international subscribers to The New York Times on the Web will
receive a 30-day
free trial. And, if you subscribe now, you will receive a 50% discount
off the standard
subscription rate of US$35.00 per month."

The Detroit News is another site which is still free.
http://www.detnews.com/

or there's a "fax" version of the NYT

http://nytimesfax.com you have to register but it doesn't cost

What you get is an 8 "page" version of the Times in Adobe Acrobat format.

And one more.... :-) The London Times -- again you have to register,
but no money... It
also includes the Times Higher Ed supplement
