Medical Examiner Says Steve McNair's Blood-Alcohol Level .16

The Tennessean is running this story with the headline, "McNair's blood-alcohol twice legal limit."  I realize that .08 is the legal limit for driving in this state, but I didn't know it was also the level for sleeping in an apartment.  You learn something new everyday.

In all seriousness, this is a bit of a relief to me.  I have been a little worried that they would find something else in his system that would lead to a litany of columns about McNair and drugs. 

Kazemi did have a "small amount" of marijuana in her system, for what that is worth.
