Well at least it gave me the idea of putting a lovelock on a tomb. I found it pretty fitting to testify of undying love..
But sure enough the tomb I refer to is not a monument....
When Parks and Recreation puts a love lock on Pont des Arts, you know it's jumped the shark.
This was also published in today's Seattle Times. One would think that the damage caused to the bridges would've enough incentive for the city to put a stop to it. There are actually some bridges in the Seattle-Tacoma area that lovers put locks on. I guess if people can't afford to go to romantic Paris they'll do the next best thing. Go figure.
Calgary Herald posted an article on the subject few days ago.
I like the "love" lock we saw last summer:
Good - but what a pity they chose to put an attractive picture of a wedding in front of that awful mess!
Eleanor Beardsley just did a piece on this (basically reporting the controversy) on NPR's "All Things Considered" this afternoon.
The gendarmerie should round up all the vandals that put love locks on things (because that's all it is-vandalism), and lock them up in a cell overnight...using a love lock on the prison cell door!
<<The gendarmerie should round up all the vandals that put love locks on things>>
They could make a start with the vendors who stand on the said bridges and openly sell the locks!
I don't suppose they have a licence?
