How Europe's night trains came back from the dead

Going to bed in one major city and waking up in another; toasting the landscape as a new country slips past; being rocked to sleep as you rattle across a continent. It's no wonder that the night trains of Europe have been a byword for romance, immortalized by writers such as Agatha Christie.

Opinion: The only way Republicans can lead again

President Donald Trump is conducting an all-out assault on our democracy. There is no other way to look at this. The President lost the election and his legal team has failed to produce evidence of voter fraud. So now President Trump is attempting to convince state legislatures to overthrow the results.

Opinion: The problem with 'the letter'

It's already being referred to as "the letter" -- a brief, but somehow still wordy missive, formally titled "A Letter on Justice and Open Debate," initially signed by 153 writers, artists, academics and journalists, and published by the venerable Harper's Magazine (it appeared online July 7 and will be printed in the October issue). In it, this cohort of artists, intellectuals and public figures decry a landscape in which "intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty" have, in their eyes, become rampant.

The long-dead muse inspiring Trump's briefing show

Writers and technicians labor feverishly while the clock ticks. The crowd starts to gather around 5 p.m. It's a hot ticket. No one wants to be late. Backstage, the temperamental star suddenly arrives. One can imagine him pausing for a last-minute check of hair and wardrobe. Then it's time for the show:
