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."

Get Some Ugly Friends! Can't help but comment on today's "Ask Amy" column in The Inquirer. A woman says she's met a guy, and thinks she should meet him with a group of friends. Problem: Her friends are all gorgeous. What should she do? Naive goody-two-shoes Amy Dickinson (pictured) says, don't worry, if he's a great guy, he'll see her inner beauty. Read column. C'mon. You can't sell a Saab if it's surrounded by Jaguars. Especially to guys, who have this flaw of being blinded, at least short-term, by great looks. Bet if he brings his friends, they'll all be ugly. What do you think?
