If you were hoping that the new year might bring a pardon for the long-suffering Billy The Kid, think again. Gov. Bill Richardson, after carefully considering the situation, opted out of letting The Kid off for murdering 21 people.
Apparently ol’ Henry McCarty (Bill’s real name) will just have to continue serving his life sentence. Oh, wait, he was shot dead in 1881. Hmm… why is the governor thinking about this again?
