Love, Locked (and slightly undervalued)

Lovelock, Nevada
July 1, 2006

< < previous | next > >

Next time you're crossing Nevada with your sweetheart, stop in and padlock your love to this lover's chain, inspired by similar chains in China and brilliantly adopted by the visitor's bureau of this felicitously named town, in hopes of luring travelers off the interstate. (Note to Lovelock Visitor's Bureau: At $7 per lock, you're not charging enough; once you've got him all the way out to Lovelock, any Romeo would pay two or three times that to prove his love.)
