Sign language


    I look forward to reading your columns each week — thanks for being the voice of reason in Malibu. I recently married and moved here from Washington, D.C., where I was involved in national politics — Malibu politics makes Washington look reasonable!

    I read in your column in the July 29 issue that the “No Parking” signs on Point Dume near the headlands are “unpermitted.” Does that mean that the public can park there and their cars can’t be ticketed? The beach in that area is lovely, but practically impossible to reach by the time you park miles away and walk down. It seems to me that if we are talking about public land, the public should be able to enjoy the land and the sand and the sea.

    Editor’s note: Do not park there. You will be ticketed.
