Masking a Problem

The masks were back downtown last weekend and no one got cited by police while the City Law Department works out an ordinance that distinguishes between comic book characters like Spiderman and a prohibition against wearing masks in public aimed at groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

How do you write an ordinance for every possible mask event? How about Halloween? What about safety concerns wearing masks in downtown traffic?

How do you distinguish between comic characters as street performers and the merely comical Klansmen?

And you never know when a state senator will want to wear a Mexican wrestler mask.
