What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

$4-a-Gallon Gas? Fill Up With Cooking Oil? The threat of Hurricane Rita forced gulf refineries to shut down, and that will force gas prices up. Story. Columnist John Grogan, though, has a story of hope, about a Berks County man who runs his '85 Mercedes on used peanut oil he gets for free from a local restaurant. The exhaust is very clean, with a bit of a smell like french fries. Are you doing anything to be free of oil and electric companies? Post a comment and tell us your story.
