Mixed Message

This former Nike Missile radar tracking facility located on a mountaintop overlooking Los Angeles is now open to hikers -- or is it? The conflicting "Restricted Entry" and "Welcome" language on the sign at the entrance to this Cold War facility is reminscent of Dr. Strangelove in more ways than one. This sign also brings to mind the parking signs on the streets of Washington, DC, where, on the same signpost, it is not unusual to find one sign listing hours where parking is permitted, and another sign stating "No Parking Anytime."

I guess the question you have to ask yourself is, "Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?"
