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."

And You Thought Gossip Columnists Are Nosy Liberace liked to gamble? Bette Davis was a communist sympathizer? Actor Victor Mature had a stalker? All sorts of allegations and insinuations are emerging from a six-inch stack of FBI documents obtained by the Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act. The AP asked for every "High Visibility Memorandum" from 1974 to 2005 and got 1,500 pages on all sorts of famous folks, including Louis Armstrong, Lucille Ball, Walter Payton and Albert Einstein. Story. Feel safer knowing the Bureau kept a watchful eye on Groucho Marx (above), Walt Disney and the TV show The FBI? Wonder if the FBI has a file on you?
