  1. From a NYT article on couples in Rome writing their names on padlocks and locking them to lampposts:
    So the tradition continues, if with some reservations about compromising on love. Some young Romans said that even before the new posts, the ritual had lost its appeal, gotten touristy. Indeed, two vendors sell locks on the spot for one to five euros. Families pose for cellphone photos.

    "I would be embarrassed," said Michael P., a 22-year-old who withheld his last name because he was smoking marijuana. "It's a question of dignity. If I want to express love, I will express it in my way.''

    There's a student...let's call her "Lisa S." No no, that's too obvious. "L. Simpson"

    That's funny. This is probably what the guy said to the NYT reporter: I don't want anyone to know my name because I'm smoking weed, and if they found out, the fuzz will attack my house to arrest me for smoking it.
