Wall Street Journal Interview on Billy the Kid

December 27, 2010

Did a phone interview with the Wall Street Journal at lunchtime today.

They are doing a story on Governor Bill Richardson's threatened pardon of Billy the Kid. Supposed to run in tomorrow's edition. Did another phoner with a Durango, Colorado radio station about them being crowned a Top Ten Western Town in our current issue.

After the interview I whipped out a nice little fire rider study:

Working on a quotes page for 2011. I love quotes and quotes pages and find it almost impossible NOT to read one. It really is like a bag of potato chips—bet you can't just read one:

"There is almost no English surname, however ancient and dignified, that cannot be instantly improved by the prefix 'Spanker'."
—Christopher Hitchens, gleefully attacking the conservative, family-values author Paul Johnson who was outed for an 11-year affair that involved spanking

"The worst truth to be confronted with is always the one that you already know."
—Justin Taylor

"A thousand probabilities do not make one fact."
—Old Vaquero Saying

"He that will not apply new remedies, must expect new evils."
—Francis Bacon

"Imagined history can be more persuasive than fact."
—Old Vaquero Saying
