Post office renamed for Dorothy Height

By Associated Press


President Barack Obama has signed a bill naming a Washington post office after civil rights leader Dorothy Height.

Height, the longtime president of the National Council of Negro Women, died earlier this year. The bill designates the post office at 2 Massachusetts Ave. near Union Station as the Dorothy I. Height Post Office.

Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland says he was honored to join the president Wednesday night for the bill signing.

What a crock . . .

With all this country has facing it right now on budget and spending issues, BHO takes the time and expense to change the name of a post office. A post office is a post office - nothing more.

What a crock . . .
