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 ... 'One Book, One Philadelphia' Gets Too Greedy Or just plain indecisive. This reading program is a great idea: Pick a book, publicize it, and people might actually read it, happy to have a common cultural experience. This year, though, three books will be named, all about Ben Franklin. What?! This saps the sense of unity and undermines the motivation to take part. Few people are likely read more than one, so how and why should I choose one, knowing more people will probably read one of the other two titles? The titles haven't been named yet (that picture's just a guess), so let's hope there's still time to chart a singular course. Officials can't agree which is best? Flip a coin!Read Inquirer article.
