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."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
