Take a Bow

I quit taking the News-Press for all the obvious reasons. I devour The Santa Barbara Independent every Thursday. But I miss long, well-researched, and well-written feature articles; they’re usually limited to the Los Angeles and New York Times. No more. Tyler Hayden’s “Game of Drones” was everything a news junkie like me wants and needs: awesome color pictures that cover all aspects of the story; no typographical errors; great syntax; lead-in sentences to each subtopic; coverage of nearly every interesting part of the story; no need to search for the end of the article many pages later; interviews and quotes of a wide range of experts and involved people. Please use Hayden often, or you will lose him to a bigger publisher.
