This is Worse Than That Damn Renee Montagne

This is why I drink tea.

Who's Renee Montagne and what does she have to do with that idiot commerical that makes me glad I'm allergic to caffeine? My Internet search brought nothing conclusive.

Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep took over hosting NPR's Morning Edition back in 2004 when Bob Edwards was ousted. It was a very sad day for all of us who were used to Bob Edward's baritone, as Renee and Steve are more of the bright chirpy morning people, whereas Bob Edwards made you feel like you weren't the only bleary eyed person hugging your coffee. Le Sigh.

Google failed? What? Aghast! Wait... Maybe that's because our lovely Goo, grammer/spelling stickler extraordinaire, spelled her name wrong. It's actually Rene Montaine. Sorry to call you out, Goo. I happens rarely, and is therefore all the more satisfying when it does!

Wait a minute.

NPR HAS FAILED.

Here they say Rene Montaine

And here they say Renee Montagne.

I'm inclined to go with the one with the accent aigu. But I don't think I've been this disillusioned since they kicked Bob Edwards off... ON MY BIRTHDAY (seriously).

Oh, and Rene is a boy's name.
