Ok, I know this is closed as a duplicate, but I am pasting some additional info here for reference. All info is about the FIRST system of the original message

## The locale settings
fomcls-Mac-Pro:Desktop fomcl$ locale
LANG=
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_CTYPE="UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="C"
LC_MONETARY="C"
LC_NUMERIC="C"
LC_TIME="C"
LC_ALL=

##  export LANG="en_US.UTF-8" does not fix it.
fomcls-Mac-Pro:Desktop fomcl$ export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
fomcl-Mac-Pro:Desktop fomcl$ python
Python 2.7.2 (default, Jun 20 2012, 16:23:33)

## export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" makes it all work as expected/desired.
fomcls-Mac-Pro:Desktop fomcl$ export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
