I can understand if it's an Hispanic/Latino announcer.  But otherwise.... Even
when NPRs <sp?> Mendalico Barco signs off after a story, she's totally
unaffected in her pronunciation until she hits her name.  The change in affect
is always good for a grin.  <treading on thin PC ice...> You KNOW that she hears
