For a while there yesterday we were worried the efforts to raise awareness about development near the historic Hollywood sign was going to get stalled on a semi-comical near-typo when the mission to transform the giant letters via a banner reading "Save the Peak" for some time read "SAVEYPOOD." But the task is finally done, and now the message is, at least visually and grammatically, clear.

Want to see the sign in the daylight tomorrow? There are several good vantage points you can get to by car or by foot, and since the weather is going to be so beautiful, why not take on the Beachwood Canyon (or Hollywoodland) Staircases walk, which guarantees some stunning views of the sign.
