AP Style: All hail Caesar, but no longer on C-section

AP stood its ground for years on the traditional spelling of Caesarean section, going back to the roots of the word (though as you can see from Wikipedia and alt-usage-english, those roots are mighty cloudy). No more.

The wire service as of today has converted to the now more widely used cesarean section.

Also note the new one is lowercase.
