Inkwell has just heard from a reader who may — or may not — be an outraged Canadian. She was responding to a letter from an Inkwell reader saying that cartoonist Garry Trudeau is Canadian.

Our correspondent writes:

“Garry Trudeau was born in New York City in 1948 and was raised in Saranac Lake , N.Y. He attended Yale University , where he received his B.A. and an M.F.A. in graphic design. Honestly, how hard is it to get your facts straight? This kind of nonsense calls your credibility into question. Not everyone called Trudeau is Canadian.”

Our correspondent is right.

Inkwell proffers her sincere apologies to Canada.
