ftfa "The city council said rust from the locks, which hang off chains, is harming the fabric of the bridge."

WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU MAKE A BRIDGE OUT OF FABRIC!?

Lots of locks also on the bridges over the Seine in Paris. They are regularly removed, too.

Great. Now all those relationships are doomed.

It wouldn't seem like rocket science to put up a chain somewhere that people can hang locks on without damaging the "fabric of the bridge".

As sweet as the ritual is, people have to obey the Master.

You need to lock up the full definition of fabric. It does not just mean cloth.

Regardless, I am happy to see them action to get rid of the locks. This has become such a trend here in DC and it is annoying to me.

What's more important, a 2,000+ year old bridge, or some soppy coonts stupid 'romantic' gesture? Put padlock detecting springs on the bridge that fling anyone found carrying a padlock into the river. Then fill the river with sharks.

Too bad the removal is happening in Italy then.

Hmm. If the locks are attached to a chain, why couldn't they just snip some links here and there, and remove/relocate the whole enchilada to somewhere else public, with the locks still in place?

/Don't care really, just thinking that could solve the problem without disappointing those lovers who put the locks on...

This fad of putting locks all over the place is based on some book written by a guy who seems to be the Italian version of Nicolas Sparks. In other words, it ain't no beautiful historical custom that's been going on for hundreds of years. it's more like the equivalent of tying a yellow ribbon around an old oak tree, if you're old enough to remember that.

They're raping those locks! Somebody call the Pope!

Really? Here is one example why this statement is beyond ridiculous. Ancient cave paintings (I'm pretty sure somebody back then thought it was a waste of time).

Sure it's sweet, and I like the melting down for a sculpture notion. I simply wonder if those that are opposed to the harvesting to protect the bridge are willing to pay for repairs when the sucker buckles?

Only if it's an ancient cave painting of a padlock, with a heart around it and says "Ugg + Ngck 4eva"
