The Crashing Of The Waves

It has begun … “the crashing of the waves.”

For one week each July, our founding editor withdraws from the marketplace of ideas to recharge his batteries at an undisclosed location in the Dirty Myrtle (a.k.a. Myrtle Beach, S.C.). There he rides the wild surf like a Sea God … or something like that.

This year’s break runs from July 13-21 – during which time FITS completely shuts down.

To mark the occasion – and to ensure there is limited confusion regarding what’s transpiring with the site – we erect a “wall of water” over the site’s headline boxes.

Here’s what it looked like last year on our old site …

the wall

Beautiful, isn’t it?

While FITS won’t be publishing during our one week vacation, we’ll be keeping a list of the stories we need to break/ cover/ comment on upon our return … so please keep sending your tips, links, comments, questions and suggestions via email or use our new Tip Wire if you prefer sending information anonymously.

We’ll be keeping tabs on all of those submissions …

Also, Sic will be randomly updating his Twitter and Facebook pages while he’s gone … so be sure to sign up for his tweets or “friend” him if you haven’t done so already.

And one final note … not long after Sic’s return on July 21st we will be unveiling FITS 3.0, the latest iteration of our ongoing experiment in new media. The upgrade – which is being beta-tested as we speak – will represent a major leap forward for us, and we look forward to sharing it with you not long after we get back.

See everybody soon …

Will, I hope you and your family have a great vacation. I hope the next iteration of the website is better, but I can’t argue with the content. It gives us something to think about, even if we don’t all agree.

FITS 3.0 needs to auto correct “our founding editor” posts. Really, shouldn’t it be “our founding blogger” anyway? I enjoy it but..STOP. THE. THIRD. PERSON. CRAP.

Liberals fear Truth, justice and BigT, like they fear a REAL job….

They cannot give reason, honor and decency a voice. People may respond and FITS-Lizenby’s power base would be shaken…Can’t have that…

Lol! Fear of a real job.

The top three commenters of FitsNews are as follows: Grand “BigT” Tango at 1187, Smirks at 1144, and Shifty Henery at 1047. Damn! And Fits hasn’t been using Disqus that long. I haven’t seen Shifty in a while so I’m assuming he’s now employed.

GrandTango July 13, 2013 at 2:04 pm

My job is keeping Dumb@$$ liberals on the chain…So me and Henry got something in common…

Also: Out of all the names you listed, I’m the only one that is counter to the lock-step, failed and pack-thinkers…that should give you a clue….

At least Smirks is informative and funny. You just squawk all day.

Shifty Henry reported several weeks ago that he was “going to the mattresses” and would not be posting for a while. I don’t know what he meant by that or what he is doing. Miss his jokes and cartoons/photos though.

Except for the gossip, and the freedom in the comment section, The State offers the same slant, and most of the agenda that FITS offers.

There are more locals, and more revealing posters, on this site, and that has value. But The State has slicker, and more leftist, liberals peddling the cause.

PS: Have a nice Va-cay FITS…

FITS misses Another BIG story…
FITS has been Obviously non-committal to the George Zimmerman Kangaroo Court in Fla. …(Is that where Sanford’s people first exploited?)…would explain a lot…

Strange, since it is a cause ALL Liberal-Tarians should be SCREAMING about on Zimmerman’s behalf. A man exercising his Rights was railroaded to a joke a trail w/ a Leftwing Zealot judge, as hate mobs, yelled “Kill Him.”..And then the PEOPLE, through a fair just jury, spoke back…

Then Brave and Just Americans who decided this case risked their own safety to follow the law…and do the right thing..

Truly a MONUMENTAL moment in modern American history…but Liberals lost, so the media is either lashing out ridiculously, or trying to ignore it (see FITS)…

At any rate: Another BIG loss for Obama…and another very telling and high-profile fumble by FITS…
