Black Atlas in Paris

I recently came across a site which in conjunction with American Airlines sponsors a website called Black Atlas. BlackAtlas was created as a platform to bring together and share the unique cultural perspectives of the African-American community in a meaningful and relevant way. 

I think it is an excellent idea

The Pont des Arts (Love Locks bridge) collapse

Sad news for the iconic bridge

The Pont des Arts bridge over the Seine, (which has become a bridge where lovers go to express their love with an initialed padlock), in central Paris was closed for a few hours on Sunday after a metal grill laden with padlocks left by amorous couples collapsed onto the walkway.
Padlocks began appearing on bridges in Paris and other European cities more than five years ago left by people seeking to symbolise their enduring love - often inscribed with couples' names. Lovers typically throw the keys into the river.

There was a similar incident last year.  No one was hurt in the incident.

On Bridges in Paris, Clanking With Love

PARIS — Johannes and Melissa. David and Michaela. Ben and Justin.
These are a few of the names written on thousands of metal padlocks attached to the railings of the Pont des Arts, one of the most beautiful of the bridges spanning the Seine as it winds through Paris.
The keys have long since been tossed into the water by those who attached the locks to the bridge, most of them couples who hoped that they would be, as the words on one lock put it, “Locked in love forever.”
