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."

Fishy Poll Pa. State Sen. Vince Fumo may have looked like an angel at a July event, but an Inquirer editorial has questions for you about his activities. Example: "A nonprofit backed by Fumo ... was reimbursed $215,161 last year by Fumo's political action committee for at least two polls. By law, a nonprofit cannot engage in political activity. Does this reimbursement smell very fishy, somewhat fishy, mildly fishy, or does it just smell like Philadelphia?"
