Billy the Kid has been hosed again! No pardon from New Mexico's lame duck governor, the honorable Bill Richardson. Some thought this would be his chance, since Richardson had no ostensible back to scratch or ax to grind.

Well, the Kid wasn't a good guy, really, but he also wasn't as bad as the 'legend.' (And he wasn't left-handed, either!) And what would he have been if the original promise of a pardon had been kept?

I'm no historian, just a history buff. And I love that this debate has helped keep history alive for so many who actually give a damn (and even those who don't).

Maybe new evidence will turn up . . . in the meantime, sorry, Kid!

The whole shooting a deputy from a window with a double-barreled shotgun probably didn't help the Kid's chances any, lol. :P
