Congratulations to Laura Knoy!  (So that's how you spell it?)

Has anyone else noticed that NPR has a penchant for hiring people with
obscure names?   The voices are fine; even Andrei Codrescu's accent is
no problem: but the names of NPR personalities are sometimes enough to
provoke puzzlement and general head-scratching.   The women's names 
seem to strike me as odd more often that the men's, too.  

Want to generate a new NPR correspondent's name?  pick one from column
A and one from column B:

	Davar			Ydstie
	Corva			Hom
	Carline 		Liasson
	Vertamae		Gjelten
	Ina			Flatow
	Cokie			Ardalan

Mix and Match!
