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."

Talk About It, Talk About It ... Who Would You Like to See Go to Jail? It's probably a character flaw, but I was happy to see a couple of corporate crooks get sent up the river. L. Dennis Kozlowski (left) and Mark Swartz were convicted of stealing $600 million from their company, Tyco International. Yesterday, the two were bused to Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, N.Y., where each cell "is 90 square feet, has a metal door, a metal bed, a sink, a toilet, a writing desk with a seat, and a secure window," says the AP story. But people don't always pay, of course. Just witness yesterday's news that no charges could be filed against child-abusing priests from the Philadelphia Archdiocese. Who would you like to see get convicted and tossed in the slammer?
