Don Diego de la Vega fights injustice in Tbilisi

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I noticed the distinctive mark of Zorro on a door.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that the dashing black-clad masked outlaw who defends the commoners and indigenous peoples of the land against tyrannical officials and other villains had moved from California to Georgia to fight injustice in our neighborhood.

The tall person smiled and told me that Zorro (Spanish for “fox”) was the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega, a  character created in 1919, who wore a black costume with a flowing Spanish cape, a flat-brimmed black sombrero cordobés and a black cowl mask. An agile athlete and acrobat, he used his bullwhip as a gymnastic accoutrement to swing through gaps between city roofs, and was very capable of landing from great heights and taking a fall.

I suggested to the tall person that society should not have to rely on a 97 year old black-clad masked outlaw to maintain justice, especially as he might not be as nimble as he used to be.

The tall person agreed that it did seem unfair.
