Landmark Billboard?

Iran is threatening something "big" will happen on Feb. 11, maybe this is what they're referring to:

From NBCLosAngeles.com:

Trust For Public Lands, a nature conservation group, said it has reached a deal that would protect a huge swath of land above the Hollywood sign from being developed into luxury homes....

As part of its initiative to save land near the sign from development, Trust for Public Lands wants to cover the sign with a shroud that reads, "Save the Peak."

The LAPD sent out a community alert to Hollywood residents -- possibly because it might alarm people to find one of LA's most recognized 450-foot-long landmark wrapped in a giant blanket. Tim Ahern, a spokesman for the Trust, said the group is still waiting for permission from the city and the Hollywood Sign Trust....

Er, ok. That will make for an interesting photo if it goes through. Imagine being a tourist for one day in LA - the day the sign is covered. I'd be ticked.

Feb. 12 Update: Sign is on it's way up
