Concerned soap stars ride Angels Flight
A reader writes in, "When I was home sick last week I watched the soap opera 'The Bold and the Beautiful.' One episode centered around a woman with cancer riding the Angel's Flight downtown. It was a really sappy segment with cheesy music above the Angel's Flight. I nearly choked on my chicken soup." Thank goodness they fixed this thing! Here's dying-of-lung-cancer Stephanie Forrester, and some worried friends, riding the funicular. And in a twist, Stephanie gives the word "funicular" an Italian accent. But doesn't she have to be sitting at all times during the ride? Someone call the California Public Utilities Commission, we sense a violation!
