and this folks is how your tax dollars are wasted by stupid crap like this. I'd rather have my tax dollars used hunting down and deporting the illegal aliens who infest our land and make us citizens take a backseat to them. We are not second class citizens because we are citizens!

What fun! I wonder what else of interest is in those dusty old vaults and warehouse's in Washington. Reminded me of the closing scene in the first Indiana Jones movie where an archaeological item was being stored in a government warehouse by a guy on a fork life with no idea......

Good story. Their fake money back then was as worthless as much as ours will be by 2012.

Any new word on treasure at Victorio Peak?

Secret tunnels under La Posta into Mesilla?

This was perhaps the most informative and entertaining article I have had the pleasure of reading from a local journalist. My congratulations to the two detectives that (after 130 years) solved the case, history is only valuable if it is accurate.
As for Old Timer...... go attend your Tea Party meeting and leave thinking people alone.
