Dear Daily News, you bury your excellent stories, columnists and blogs on your website, you let The Signal kick your ass in Santa Clarita and you think a few drops of rain is breaking news.

Whisky Tango Foxtrot, dudes.

Government offices being closed today is not breaking news; it happens every year, as planned. Drizzle is news of the hour or a weather update, not breaking. Unless the Oscars are canceled, you announcing that tomorrow they will make an announcement is not breaking. Maybe it will be breaking tomorrow, but not really, we knew it was coming.

You have some great writers and you cover important stories that don't get covered. It's time to really invest in that website because it still is terrible. We're glad you're doing a survey, again, to better the site. Good luck and we'll gladly take that $1000 prize. xoxo.
