Better Late than Never

Nearly 130 years after being promised a pardon, ti seems that America's favorite outlaw might finally get one. Billy the Kid was Promised a pardon in the year 1881 by then Governor Lew Wallace for helping to clean up the lawlessness of New Mexico. That's right, Billy actually worked to bring peace to the people of Lincoln County. After doing his part, namely testifying in court against some pretty bad men, Billy was supposed to walk out a free man. But the Governor backed out of the deal, leaving The Kid with a long list of enemies in addition to lawmen now hunting for him. Flash forward to the year 2010, where retiring Governor Bill Richardson is contemplating finally signing a pardon for Billy! Stay Tuned!
