Questioning a headline
Just got off the phone with a reader who questioned our use of the word "raucous' to describe the teacher rally in Sacramento on Wednesday. She said she was in Sacramento, on other business, and saw the rally and heard it but didn't feel like it was a "raucous" crowd as our headline stated. Headline writers take their cues from the reporting inside the story and in reading the story. The headline should accurately sum up the story. No doubt this was a large, vocal crowd. Was it "raucous?"
