Thats because the L.A. post office near the soul legends studio is being renamed the Ray Charles Post Office Building at a ceremony starting at 2 p.m. PST.
Congresswoman Diane E. Watson came up with the idea of Charles going postal and she hopes its just the first of many honors for the singer.
But while there is now a post office honoring Charles, the people who handle his estate have no plans to return the favor by rerecording hits Whatd I Say or Hit The Road Jack with mail-oriented lyrics like Whatd I Send or Lick The Road Jack.
