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."

A Man Who Understands "Lost"? A friend of mine has a theory that might make sense of ABC's hit drama "Lost." The story follows plane-crash survivors as they try to figure out what insane kind of island they've been stranded upon. (Tonight at 9 on ABC.) And this theory just might be right. No, it's not one of these:
The people are all dead, wandering the limbo realm between heaven and hell.
The castaways are unwitting participants in a diabolical "reality" show.
The island is a mad scientist's experiment.
The island is an alien spaceship/zoo.
He got the idea after the mysterious hatch was opened and Jack (pictured) descended the shaft to find a gun-wielding fellow he actually knew. Since this theory might be a "spoiler," to read it, you'll have to descend into the "comments" region below.
