Bill Richardson Makes Important Decision

Governor of state of New Mexico is deliberating on whether to posthumously pardon Billy the Kid, some 130 years after he was gunned down as an outlaw.

One would have to admire Governor Bill Richardson for his willingness to tackle such a weighty issue and one would likely jump to the conclusion that unlike its neighbors, all must be well in New Mexico.

Unlike Arizona, New Mexico must not have any conflict over illegal immigrants.

Unlike Nevada, Richardson’s state must be enjoying robust employment.

Unlike California, he must not have to wrestle with budget deficits.

And for sure unlike the rest of the country, New Mexico’s school system must be doing just fine and leaving no child behind.

Hard to know how the people of New Mexico feel about their governor, but surely William Bonney is rolling over in his grave in gratitude.
