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."

Overnight News ...
Crash Kill Teen, Hospitalizes 4 Others
Late last night, just 11 days after one Bucks County crash killed three teens, another involving a car full of teenagers proved fatal, according to TV and radio reports. Mickey Teranto, 16, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, John Farber, 17, was driving on Bristol Pike, when the car lost control, struck a guardrail and rolled off the road. Farber was reported in critical condition at St. Mary Medical Center, after being trapped in the car, along with Christopher Cullen and Anthony Daponte, both in serious condition at the same hospital. A hospital spokesperson said one is 15, the other 16. Tara Walp, 16, who was ejected along with Teranto, is in serious condition at Frankford-Torresdale Hospital. Debris on the road may have been a factor in the accident. Bristol Township schools are closed for Columbus Day.

Today's Inquirer has a column by John Grogan about the earlier tragedy. The headline: "Young lives lost, lessons unlearned."

Read "More riders, more risks," last week's Inquirer editorial calling for Pennsylvania to follow the lead of other states and limit the number of teens in a vehicle.
