Default 98 Honda Accord (standard transmission) won't start?

I have a 98 Honda Accord lx with a standard transmission. It has about 160k miles on it. The car has been fine with no problems until today when I tried to start it. It wouldn't crank, when I turned the key, the radio, lights and air condition turned on but the engine wouldn't. It rained earlier in the day so it was pretty humid if that helps. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

Also, there is a brand new battery in it, only a month old from today (10/28/11)
