Jackass way to go

The Associated Press reported today that Ryan Dunn of reality show Jackass fame was really drink when he died in a car accident last week.

Accoring to AP: Dunn's blood-alcohol level was 0.196 at the time of the crash early Monday morning. The report was released Wednesday by West Goshen Township Police.The legal limit for drivers in the state is .08.Police say Dunn may have been going as fast as 140 mph when his Porsche veered off the roadway, went airborne and crashed into the woods in a Philadelphia suburb.

Because of this column, and the number of older people in my family right now, including a 90-year-old mother, I sometimes find myself in conversations about the "best" way to die.

Dying while drunk has never been a top choice. Very sad, this story.
