Interesting CSI: NY factoid

Found this one while looking up something completely different on Snopes.com

Mac Taylor, the team leader in CSI: NY may be a millionaire. Not the actor, the character.

Taylor is shown as the widower of someone killed on September 11. The average payment to survivors of those killed in the WTC disaster was $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million. Given that they've mentioned that his wife was some sort of professional, forget exactly what kind, he would presumably be at the higher end of the scale.

Not sure what to do with this one - I'm not planning any CSI fics at present - but if anyone else wants to use it, please feel free.
