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."

Anybody on the Union's Side? Overwhelmingly, the comments to Early Word have ripped the workers, especially their insistence on excellent health care coverage. Who's willing to come to their defense?
Health care's a hot issue for Pennsbury teachers and Wal-Mart workers, too, points out Andrew Cassell in his Inquirer column. "Is medicine making the U.S. economy sick?" he asks. He quotes an expert: Employees never did pay for health care. You did, in lower wages.
