Why does justice wear a mask?

The recent floor speech of Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) sympathizing with the criminals who murder judges and their families qualifies as ‘conduct unbecoming a United States Senator’ and can only serve to inflame the passions of would-be copycats. Senator Cornyn’s speech and Texas Congressman DeLay’s threats against judges have helped me to understand why people like the Lone Ranger, who “led the fight for law and order” in Texas, felt it was necessary to wear a mask.
