Ко вчерашнему, про иммиграцию

На этот раз аж Томас Фридман выступил. Аж в NYT. “I’d start by acknowledging a simple fact: Some things are true even if Donald Trump believes them!” – пишет он. И первым пунктом в списке этих некоторых вещей у него что?

We can’t take in every immigrant who wants to come here; we need, metaphorically speaking, a high wall that assures Americans we can control our border with a big gate that lets as many people in legally as we can effectively absorb as citizens.

Metaphorically high wall! Legally! Какие неожиданные и интересные идеи публикует печатный орган ЦК партии. Control our border! Да это, похоже, кампания.

Трансгендеры медленно, но уверенно прокладывают дорогу в женский спорт. До сих пор я видел сообщения только про школьные соревнования, а тут все вполне по-взрослому.

On Thursday, when Bearden saddles up with the world’s best female cyclists for the Colorado Classic in her hometown of Colorado Springs, she will be the first transwoman to race with a pro peloton in the United States. Thanks to recently relaxed International Olympic Committee rules governing transgender athletes, and USA Cycling’s embrace of those new rules, Bearden has become a beacon for transathletes across the globe.

She’s a podium contender and she’s ready for the hate that might bring. She got it aplenty after she won the Tucson race.

Совершенно неизбежное развитие событий.
