A look at the stories ranking highly on various news sites.
A call for higher taxes for the super-rich is nothing new. But you don't expect to hear it from a billionaire. The New York Times' most popular article is a plea from billionaire Warren Buffett. He says that paying just under $7m (£4.2) last year was not enough as it was only 17.4% of his income. The idea that the super-rich will not invest if their taxes are higher is a myth, he says. And besides that, the whole ordeal is making him feel overprotected, "like a spotted owl".
Tim Worstall in Forbes' most popular article is having none of Warren Buffett's argument. He says it is misleading because it ignores the effect of the corporate income tax on his dividends. Only Worstall then has to apologise in an update as Mr Buffett's company Berkshire Hathaway doesn't pay a dividend.
A popular Guardian article has got hold of a professional hostage negotiator. But the whole interview feels like a negotiation for information in which the journalist John Crace is losing. The hostage negotiator, who calls himself Ben Lopez, would rather not say very much about how much ransom is paid, or how much he gets paid himself. Which leaves one question for Crace: How do you get in touch with an anonymous hostage negotiator? Lopez says insurance companies know where to find him.
The Times' Chris Ayres is not smitten by the Hollywood experience of giving birth. Although he described his wife's hospital as a spa experience, he has added up the cost of his daughter's birth in the 90210 zip code. Coming in at £28,480, the bit that amused/infuriated him the most was the extra cost of accommodation - for the baby once she was born. He says he'll be thinking twice about where his wife will give birth next time.
Daily Mail readers' are displaying an insatiable appetitive for stories about council house tenants. The paper has totted up the amount of council tenants living in properties worth over £1m. The figure is 29 but it doesn't make clear how many of them are sharing houses. It says in some cases the council rents are so much lower than equivalent private properties that it is like rent being subsidised by the taxpayer by up to £70,000 a year.
