I hope you all use your inside voices in this thread. No sense rubbing it in.

Library and foundation president Valerie Ervin said that the library's main aim is to educate and inspire disenfranchised children who have seen arts education cut from their school curricula.

They can fix it when they turn 18.

I always wondered about payphones with braille on the buttons. How do the blind even find the phone to begin with?

Or drive-thru ATMs.

Yeah, but they need to be sure they have caller ID. There's this guy that has just one thought on his brain.

Here's one my dad says:

God is love, love is blind, god is Ray Charles.

Now THAT'S ironic!

My drivers' license renewal forms have the (mandatory on all government forms) footnote that reads "this form also available in braille"

I hope the braille version of the drivers license says "WTF do you think you're trying to do"

I always wonder if blind people get sick from all the germs on the braille lettering. It's got to be gross to be touching everything all the time to feel your way around.

Did someone say Epic Ray Charles? (explodes)

/got something in my eye

And when the librarian shushes you, you should reply -

♫ Tell me what'd I say? Tell me what'd I say? Tell me I gotta know right now! ♫

Ray Charles couldn't see what you did there, subby.

No, silly, Clara Barton's the one who pioneered radioactivity. You mean Harriet Tubman.

No no, she's the one that made the trains run on time. You're thinking of Susan B. Anthony.

Could Alanis explain how a Ray Charles Memorial Library opening is ironic?

Was Ray Charles illiterate?

Did he even know how to read braille?

Do pianos come with Braille keys? What are those funny little raised points on the F and J keys on my keyboard?

Those mark the 'home position' for touch typists.

I got up to check the keys on my Yamaha keyboard before realizing you were talking about a typing keyboard.
