NYT -- Тhe greatest challenge to our military is not from a foreign enemy — it’s the widening gap between the American people and their armed forces.
В свете этого положения надо бы выкинуть выкинуть дурацкое слово "our", но, поскольку это NYT, предложениe противоположнoе: вернуть призыв, призывать по лотерее.

University of Illinois trustees this morning approved a student health insurance plan for the Chicago campus that for the first time covers gender reassignment surgery, a move that about three dozen other colleges have taken in recent years. The insurance cost for UIC students will increase about 15 percent this fall, to $922 a year, $9 of which is attributed to adding the surgery option for transgender students.
Бывает ли так, что у человека внезапно в студенческом возрасте появляется непреодолимая потребность изменить пол, или это всегда preexisting condition?
