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."

'One' Mistake Was Mine OK, somebody slap me. Yesterday I feared the worst upon reading that this year's "One Book, One Philadelphia" wouldn't have one book, but three about Ben Franklin. Turns out the idea has something for everybody. Franklin's autobiography for people (like me) who have always wanted to read it. An "interesting and lively" biography, Franklin: The Essential Founding Father. And even a title for kids: Ben & Me. Read Inquirer story, "Mouse among 3 authors."
