San Diego’s impossible railroad is 100 years old

Despite its drama-filled history of floods, fires, tunnel collapses, and other disasters, the 148-mile-long San Diego & Arizona Railway still operates over parts of the line, and there are plans to open it up completely between San Diego and the Imperial Valley. Dr. Reena Deutsch discusses this colorful piece of San Diego’s history.

Noel Coward’s Private Lives

Elyot and Amanda were once married to each other and are now honeymooning, coincidentally, at the same hotel with their new spouses. They meet by chance, reignite the old spark, and impulsively run off together. After just days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between love and anger.
