According to many of the holiday commercials going on this year, I, as an aesthetically pleasing female, will apparently love you forever and kiss you until death do us part if you buy me some diamonds from Zales.
Yes, apparently love can be bought. Love is a commodity to be purchased, traded, and/or bargained for during the holiday season of 2007. Or has the concept of LOVE AS COMMODITY always been around - dating back to paleolithic times? Yes, I do think it goes as far back as that.
