I Can See (No Pun Intended) All the Ray Charles Jokes

I came across the alt.obituaries site a few minutes ago, and an obituary of one Jose Feliciano, 78, had died in a car accident in Puerto Rico. Well, you know what the response was from people. How the hell could a blind guitarist be driving a car around, especially after Ray Charles did it one time to his Corvette and cracked it up?

Of course it wasn't THAT person. He's still kicking around and is only about 68 years old. THIS Feliciano went by the name of "Cheo," probably to avoid confusion.

This was sad:

The 78-year-old Feliciano was alone in his Jaguar when he hit a light post before dawn in the northern suburb of Cupey. Police officer Jorge Hernandez Pena, who is overseeing investigation of the crash, said in a phone interview that Feliciano was not wearing his seatbelt.

He said it is unclear what led to the crash, adding that officials did not find any drugs or alcohol in the car.
