No pardon for Billy, he was a killer of many, and law enforcement killer as well.

I read Billy the kid may have been a girl. You guys ever hear that? He was short, had small wrists, etc

Only a misleading rumor that's been around longer than I have Czechoslovakian. No pardon, wasting money pardoning a dead man who killed so many and can not benefit from it in any way. Don't waste taxpayer money while making a fool of yourself. I'm sure you'll find another just as effective way of doing that.

I'm sure Chubbo Rich will do it just to get his name in the paper?

Based on the confirmed level of corruption in today's New Mexico, I think it probably even more so back then; forces me to take the side of Billy.

He was a thug who shot people in the back...and he's DEAD. Quit trying to keep your name in the news, Governor Bill. We thank you for your service, but please, just ride off into the sunset, OK?

It does my heart good to see such support to our Gov. To Go. Have you considered that N. Korea may share our feelings for him.

Just a guess, but I say Gov. Richardson will go out of office in a blaze of glory and pardon Billy the Kid and get some publicity out of it.

I suspect if he opened his mouth over there, it won't take long for them to see all the way thru his chubby little mind. He has something in mind to shine up his image or he wouldn't have gone. And as for Billy, like it or not he will be a pardoned villain so Chubbo can get his name in the Alb news again.

Publicity. Any agent will say any publicity, good, bad, or silly is publicity, gets you noticed, keeps your fame.

The History Channel says Billy the kid could have been a girl. Some want DNA testing.. What next? I wonder how much histoy we were taught in school was even right?

Old Bill Richardson is Billy the Kid in a bigger fatter body.

He has robbed the state, lied and got away with it.

If you allow New Mexico Government to slide on the abuse of its Citizen's Civil Rights,(yes, they had them back then) it makes it that much easier for them to try to slide on them now,(as they have personally proved to my children and myself they are happy to do) and I for one, am NOT willing to be any more a victim of their sledding adventures than I can help!

Bill Richardson hasn't done such a great job as a modern day governor. He should keep his hands off New Mexico's history!
