More Internet Enhanced Cartoonery

As noted in this recent More Messages blog, I've received plenty of tips about great websites devoted to newspaper cartoons since the publication of a column about the general unfunniness of today's funnies. Another one worthy of a visit is a feature Westword contributor Cory Casciato mentioned in a comment affixed to the earlier piece: The Nietzche Family Circus, in which a panel from the ultra-creaky Bil and Jeff Keane retro-fest is paired with a quote from the severe 19th century German philospher Friedrich Nietzsche. For instance, the statement that accompanies the illustration here reads, "There are no eternal facts, as there are no absolute truths."
