New Mexico’s Bill Richardson for President

Governor Bill Richardson is among half the U.S. population 😉 vying for the presidency.

The New York Times recalls that Richardson has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

In the December issue of Wild West Magazine my friend David Turk, who is historian of the United States Marshals Service, takes us back to a violent past in New Mexico. Billy the Kid is at the center of the political drama.

Makes the verbal warring seem tame these days, and it makes me wonder if Diplomat Richardson could have resolved this messy conflict.

Turk’s piece is a great read — especially on a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon.
