It may be Billy's authentic grave, but if Baudrillard has taught us anything it's to doubt the reality of things that are labeled real... Thanks, Alisa.

I was not expecting a Baudrillard reference in my rss machine today...
kudos.

The quotation marks actually seem warranted here, since, like most rebels, some people debate over when/where Billy the Kid actually did die... even though this is the place where he did die.

"Authentic real grave burial site place of Billy William Bill...."

Ooo..I've actually been to old Ft Sumner and have also seen Billy the Kid's grave, but I can't remember both were at the same place. Hm.
