Our local cartoonist/mogul Daryl Cagle is causing a stir south of the border for the cartoon posted above.
Aw, we’re so proud.
That’s my “scandalous” Mexican flag cartoon on the front page of today’s edition of Reforma (below right), the conservative national newspaper in Mexico. Below my cartoon is on the front page of today’s El Norte newspaper in Monterrey. It seems this cartoon has struck a nerve with Mexican readers.
The Mexican embassy to the U.S. is writing a formal letter of protest about the cartoon to Msnbc.com. I’m impressed with the passion that so many people have about the cartoon here on my blog.
That is damn fine satire. It’s true and it pissed people off. We’re kvelling.
