Henry McCarty (September 17, 1859 - July 14, 1881), better known under the pseudonyms of Billy the Kid and William H. Bonney, was a 19th-century gunman who participated in the Lincoln County War and became a frontier outlaw in the American Old West. According to legend, he killed twenty-one men, but it is now generally believed that he killed eight, with the first on August 17, 1877.
McCarty was 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) tall with blue eyes, blond or dirty blond hair, and a smooth complexion. He was described as being friendly and personable at times, and as lithe as a cat. Contemporaries described him as a "neat" dresser who favored an "unadorned Mexican sombrero". These qualities, along with his cunning and celebrated skill with firearms, contributed to his paradoxical image as both a notorious outlaw and a folk hero.
He was relatively unknown during most of his lifetime, but was catapulted into legend in 1881 when New Mexico's governor Lew Wallace placed a price on his head. In addition, the Las Vegas Gazette (Las Vegas, New Mexico) and the New York Sun carried stories about his exploits. Other newspapers followed suit. Several biographies written about the Kid after his death portrayed him in varying lights.
John I from Hawai'i was first and correct with:
"Billy the Kid."
Speaking of alter egos
And he wasn't left handed. The iconic picture was printed backwards.
Billy the Kid.
Lefty Lois Of Oregon responded:
Bill and Ted called him "Mr. The Kid". Poor Billy. He should have stuck with croquet.
Billy the Kid is best known for his time as a thief and gunfighter in the American Old West, constantly on the run from law enforcement. Shot dead by Sheriff Patrick Garrett on July 14, 1881 in Fort Sumner, New Mexico.
Joe S answered:
That would be Billy the Kid, a serial killer. As an History Major you know I'm right.
Halloween recs wouldn't be complete without the inclusion of this Aussie gem directed by Peter Weir. Richard Chamberlain and David Gulpilil give the most restrained performances in a slowly developing psychological/police procedural/supernatural drama.
Chamberlain plays a lawyer who has been plagued from childhood by disturbing dreams who is asked to defend an Aborigine, David Gulpilil, charged with murder.
The atmospherics are supremely unreal; Weir's direction sucks us in very quietly into the fear factors.
Why does our lawyer have these dreams?
Is the Aborigine actually guilty of murder?
Why does the weather act so weirdly?
His family feels threatened and wonders if his actions in the case are the cause.
He is taken into catacombs under Sydney to explore..
Patriot Act NSA Spying Unconstitutional Section 215 National Security Letters Must End
My name is Marc Perkel and I have decided to announce that I will not comply with the so called "Patriot Act" laws requiring me to disclose information about my customers. If I receive a national security letter I will immediately photograph it, post it online everywhere I can, and then make a video of me burning it. I will then await my arrest. If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.
The photographer returned, but it was overcast and gray, so he'll probably return again today

A star-studded lineup of comedians including Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, George Lopez, Kathy Griffin and Arsenio Hall honored Eddie Murphy as an "American icon."
The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts presented the comedian Sunday with the Mark Twain Prize, the nation's top prize for humor.
The evening's most emotional tribute came from "Saturday Night Live" alum Tracy Morgan, who received a standing ovation from the audience. He called Murphy his "comedic hero."
At one point, Murphy offered a reminder of his willingness to do politically incorrect humor by offering some jokes about former Mark Twain award winner Bill Cosby - who was one of his "heroes," but has been accused by various women of sexual misconduct.
Among the other SNL alumni who paid tribute to Murphy were Jay Pharoah, Kevin Nealon and Joe Piscopo.
Five months after his remarkable life ended in a crash on a New Jersey highway, Princeton University is paying tribute to John Nash, the Nobel Prize-winning mathematician remembered by colleagues for his brilliance and by millions for the Hollywood movie about him.
The Ivy League school will hold a day of academic panels and remembrance events on Saturday to honour John Nash, whose struggle with schizophrenia was chronicled in 2001's "A Beautiful Mind." Nash and his wife, Alicia, were killed in a taxi crash on the New Jersey Turnpike in late May.
The couple were returning home from Oslo, Norway, where John Nash had received the 2015 Abel Prize from the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, one of the most prestigious honours in mathematics. The prize recognized his seminal work in partial differential equations, which are used to describe the basic laws of scientific phenomena.
Among the day's feature events is a public lecture by Sylvia Nasar, who wrote the biography on which the movie starring Russell Crowe as Nash was based. Nash's relatives and colleagues will also gather at the University Chapel for a public event to honour Nash's life and his long connection to the school.
Students at the Woodstock Music Lab will bend notes alongside guitar heroes, and jamming in class will be encouraged.
So it will go at the rock school for college-age students planned for the famous artists' colony in the coming years. Think Juilliard with power chords. Partners behind the venture include Michael Lang, the promoter of the original 1969 Woodstock festival.
Their group is trying to raise millions quickly enough to open the school as early as next year, though Lang said that timetable is optimistic. They reached a milestone this summer by closing a $1 million deal on an old elementary school.
Lang and fellow co-founder Paul Green will use their music-world connections to bring in name guest professors.
California Gov. Jerry Brown and first lady Anne Gust Brown will trade an urban loft for a historic mansion when they're working in Sacramento, the governor's office announced Friday.
The Browns and their two dogs - Sutter and Colusa - will move into the state's historic Governor's Mansion, which hasn't housed a chief executive since Ronald Reagan in 1967.
The white building constructed in 1877 features a swimming pool and was used as the backdrop to Brown's re-election victory in 2014. It has more recently been used as a state park.
The mansion housed 13 California governors until Ronald and Nancy Reagan moved out. It's currently undergoing a $1.6 million renovation on electrical, heating and fire safety retrofits to make it suitable for residency again.
The Browns, who own a home in an affluent neighborhood of Oakland, are expected to move into the mansion after construction is completed by the end of the year. They currently stay at a downtown Sacramento loft with rent paid by private donations.
When Americans lose track of money - in neglected bank accounts, paychecks they forgot to cash and elsewhere - state governments are increasingly aggressive in taking control of the cash.
Now, with those efforts swelling state coffers by more than $40 billion and lawmakers using some of it to patch budget holes, skirmishes are breaking out between states and companies with their own interest in holding on to the unclaimed property.
Companies accuse states of overreaching. State officials counter the businesses are more concerned with keeping the assets themselves. But critics say rightful owners too often get short shrift.
"The analogy is to finding somebody's lost wallet. In Minnesota, anyway, we give people their wallets back. It's just what we do here. But it's not what the state is doing," said Joe Atkins, a state representative from outside St. Paul who last year introduced a bill calling for increased funding to track down property owners.
While other states, too, have increased efforts to reunite owners with their property, many have changed laws to let them take control of more unclaimed property more quickly.
Federal scientists using new technologies have mapped what is being called a Cold Water Climate Shield, an area spanning five western states that could support viable populations of native species if the region continues its warming trend.
Mapping the cold-water refuges for cutthroat trout, a favored sport fish among anglers, and threatened bull trout could help resource managers make decisions aimed at preserving populations of those and other cold-water native species in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Wyoming.
Scientists say streams in the region have warmed up about a degree over the last three decades and are getting hotter.
"One of the things we're seeing is that the colder areas are typically in the headwaters," said Dan Isaak, a research fisheries biologist with the U.S. Forest Service in Boise. "Those are warming up a lot more slowly than streams at lower elevations."
The mapped area contains streams with temperatures preferred by cutthroat trout and bull trout but are too cold for non-native species, particularly brown trout and brook trout, thus forming the climate shield. The climate shield has practical applications, Isaak said.
Under one of the biggest land development plans ever proposed in Florida, a tract more than six times the size of Manhattan could be transformed from a home for cows and alligators into new housing developments for half a million people.
Over the next six decades, the plan being developed by the Mormon church-owned Deseret Ranch promises to convert the largest undeveloped section of metro Orlando into more than a dozen bustling neighborhoods. In the process, it would radically reshape Osceola County, a suburb that has been transitioning from cowboy culture into a major destination for Puerto Ricans moving to the mainland.
Opponents say the plan to convert cattle pastures to cul-de-sacs could destroy tens of thousands of acres of important habitat near the headwaters of the St. Johns River flowing north and the Kissimmee River flowing south. They also worry that Osceola County has been doing the bidding of Deseret Ranch, one of the nation's largest ranches. County commissioners approved the ranch's plan unanimously in September and now it awaits a state review.
"There are no checks and balances happening," said Karina Veaudry, a landscape architect, who is with the Florida Native Plants Society. "The county has been bending over backward pretty much to do whatever they say."

A judge from Guinness World Records has certified a 122-meter-long (400-foot-long) baguette baked at the Milan Expo 2015 World's Fair as the longest in the world.
Some 60 French and Italian bakers worked nearly seven hours Sunday to bake the French bread characterized by its soft middle and crusty exterior, methodically moving a specially designed portable oven along the length of the doughy preparation.
The bakers worked at a rate of 20 metres (66 feet) an hour, their progress complicated by working outdoors and the biggest challenge to avoid any breakage.
The Italian maker of Nutella, Ferrero, backed the enterprise to beat the 111-meter (364-foot) record held by a French supermarket chain. Once certified as a record-breaker, the baguette was cut and smeared with Nutella to share with the hundreds of Expo goers who celebrated the record.

Pat Woodell, who played one of the three original Bradley sisters on the 1960s CBS sitcom Petticoat Junction, died Sept. 29 at her home in Fallbrook, Calif., after a two-decade battle with cancer, the Los Angeles Times reported. She was 71.
Woodell portrayed the clever brunette Bobbie Jo opposite Linda Kaye Henning (redhead tomboy Betty Jo) and Jeannine Riley (blond boy-crazy gal Billie Jo), all daughters of Kate Bradley (Bea Benaderet), the owner of the Shady Rest Hotel near the town of Hooterville.
A native of Winthrop, Mass., Woodell started out as a singer; she performed with her Petticoat Junction sisters on the series and on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 as a member of The Ladybugs, a take-off on The Beatles.
In the early 1970s, Woodell toured with comedian Jack Benny, recorded an album and appeared in The Big Doll House (1971), a Roger Corman women's prison film that starred Pam Grier. "They caged their bodies … but not their desires!" the movie poster exclaims.
