Great point, from a reader:
You might want to note as an addendum to your column that the Lone Ranger was sullied by Justice Ginsberg in her comments.
He was not called “The Lone Ranger” because he worked alone. He was called that because the rest of his Texas Ranger unit was murdered by outlaws, leaving him alone.
In the radio series that birthed him and in the subsequent TV series, the Lone Ranger always worked closely with local law enforcement as well as civilians when helping to solve their problems. He also had his own network of partners including his nephew (the son of his brother who didn’t survive the ambush), his aunt who ran the silver mine from whence he got his bullets, as well as Tonto, his faithful Indian companion.
The term the Justice was searching for was “lone wolf.”
