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 ... That List of Priests Tens of thousands of people have examined The Inquirer's online list of priests alleged to have sexually abused children by last week's grand jury report. Tom Ferrick wrote in his column yesterday that he checked for names he knew: "I saw six: three priests who taught at Cardinal O'Hara High School when I went there; another who was a longtime resident at Sacred Heart, Manoa, where I went to church as a child; two others whom I knew as a reporter." Today, John Grogan writes in his column that "every adult Catholic in the archdiocese should read this report. Blind faith is no faith at all." Have you seen familiar names on the list? What reactions have you had? (Note: Please don't post any new allegations. Email Early Word instead, with contact information and a reporter will follow up.)
