---- — Would the editors of The Star care to explain why they titled an AP report of Obama’s suggestion that early childhood education be expanded, as “Obama’s pre-K plan draws jeers?” The AP report itself makes no mention of jeering. The New York Times Atlanta-based reporter mentions “raucous applause” in Atlanta, while titling the piece “Conservatives Skeptical of Expanding Preschool.”
