Ray Charles Post Office: Junk Mail Only

From Yahoo!:

The warm voice of Ray Charles filled the neighborhood near his recording studio during a ceremony christening a post office in his name.

As Charles' rendition of "America the Beautiful" rang out over speakers, family, friends and associates watched Wednesday as workers unveiled the new Ray Charles Station post office sign.

"My hopes are that the naming of this post office facility is only the first of many tributes [Yes, finally someone has paid tribute to the underrated, underappreciated Ray Charles --jh] for a man who started from nowhere to end up a national treasure and global phenomenon," said Rep. Diane Watson (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif., who sponsored the federal bill to rename the post office.
Now isn't it about time for a Kelley Deal post office?
