Oak Park ain't Paris

In a feeble and obviously doomed attempt to emulate Paris, Oak Park has installed a chain-link fence along a sidewalk under the Green Line elevated train tracks, and is inviting couples to hang locks from the fence as a symbol of their "love and commitment," reports today's Chicago Tribune.

The proponent of the project says she hopes the result will be a beautiful piece of art.

Only in Oak Park would hundreds of abandoned padlocks hanging from a grimy chain-link fence under a dingy train track be considered an aesthetic improvement.
