So Long 2010 - So Long Gov. Bill

I haven't really spent a lot of time at this blog this year.  Not that the crazy things don't keep happening in good old NM.

But I couldn't let Gov. Richardson's last day in office go by without thanking him for not pardoning Billy The Kid, and for providing all that grist for many, many mills of controversy for the past eight years. 

Of course, not pardoning Billy is just another mistake, kind of like running for president.  Lew Wallace didn't keep the promise lo those many years ago, thereby starting the tradition of NM governors not keeping promises.  So I think Billy deserved a pardon back then, and probably should get one now, posthumously.  Then again, does that make Pat Garrett a murderer?

Oh, well.  In any case . . . Happy New Year to everyone!
