You already know what he said. But in case you need a summary: According to Trump in 2005, Trump can do anything to a woman because he’s famous, including grab her pussy. If you’re struggling to understand if grabbing a woman by the pussy equates to anything harmful (it does) and whether footage from 11 years ago matters (it does, too), I have a story for you.

A couple of recently published opinion articles butted heads over whether or not literacy should be considered a right. In both articles, the authors failed to detail an important distinction between a positive right and a negative right.

Mr. Davidson touched upon it in his article, but did not adequately spell out the difference. Negative rights are those that oblige inaction of the state, such as the right to bear arms. Positive rights are those that oblige action of the state, such as the right to education.

This weekend I traveled to New Jersey to photograph the football game between Michigan and Rutgers. Besides getting closer with my Michigan Daily colleagues and taking great portfolio shots, being on the field was a completely new way to see the game.

In every election, tax policy seems to be one of the major issues of each candidate’s campaign.

If you haven’t heard, Donald Trump is in a lot of hot water. In a video recording from 2005 released on Friday by The Washington Post, Mr. Trump is recorded making crude and sexist remarks regarding women. Last night, Trump said, “Certainly I’m not proud of it. But this is locker room talk.”

This Tuesday was the second day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The holiday focuses around self-reflection, prayer and hope for the year to come. As I sat in services Tuesday morning, I was surprised to hear, between prayers, whispering from my peers: “There’s an anti-Israel wall in the middle of the Diag.”

I’d never quite understood Jordan Baker’s love of large parties and their supposed intimacy in “The Great Gatsby” until one night, as I rushed down State Street, heart pounding, blood pumping, late for something or other, I paused at the sight of a new addition to the landscape. Tall blackboard walls stood at the corner of State and William, and the big, bold letters scrawled across the top — “Before I die, I want to …” — beckoned to me.
