Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

PADLOCKS OF LOVE!

People have strange beliefs! Leaving padlocks as a symbol of ever last love for romantic couples attached to the Pont des Arts bridge 
didn't amuse the locals or the authorities who removed about 700.000 padlocks over fear that the sheer weight of the padlocks was putting the 19th century structure at risk. Now that the bridge's metal grilles were replaced by plexiglass panels , tourists are attaching the damn padlocks to the metal grilles of the stairways to the banks of the Seine.
