It's the Little Things, Part II

The U.S. Department of Justice recently reported that one in four college women will be victims of sexual assault by the time she graduates, though officials say that statistic might be higher than the reality at USC.

Am I a bad person if I was distracted from the disturbing-ness of this article's topic by the horrendously ungrammatical lede? What if, in the moment, I was maybe more upset by the latter than the former?

One of the occupational hazards of copy editing, I suppose.
