Hurray for Hollywood [Sign]

For some reason, Howard Hughes owned all of the land around the famous "Hollywood" sign. His estate now owns it and they want $12.5 million or they plan to cover the slopes with condos. UGH!

A community group has been trying to raise the money, but like a true B-Movie, they fell short.

To the rescue at the last second came none other that Playboy's own Hugh Hefner, who wrote a person check for needed $900,000. The sign is saved. Hefner comes across as a good guy. And, the Hughes estate is richer.

Schwarzenegger didn't contribute and cash, but he did show up for the photo-op. Politicians, don't you just love them!
