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 ...
5 Hot Topics
1. $1.99 gas?! Curious, isn't it, how pump prices plummet just as oil barons get grilled on Capitol Hill? Picture's from a Cherry Hill station. See D.C. story.
2. Should high-paid managers shoulder more health-care costs? As the SEPTA strike made clear, workers can expect to pay more for coverage. What's fair? How hard-hit are you? More.
3. Is Santorum dodging the President? Bush visits Wilkes Barre tomorrow to talk about the war on terrorism. But Sen. Rick Santorum will be speaking in Philly. Think the candidate is shying away because of Bush's slipped popularity? More.
4. With T.O. gone, will people pick on McNabb? Stephen A. Smith's column wonders why no teammates "furiously" defended him from assorted Owens potshots. Some fans seem to think: You wanted T.O. gone? You better win now, baby.
5. What grabbed you most about that cheerleader lesbian-sex-in-the-bathroom story? The answer's different for men and women, Tanya Barrientos writes in "A Big Internet Hit." Last night, David Letterman said he was shocked the women got fired -- they should get their own halftime show. Then he delivered a Top Ten List: Questions on the Carolina Panthers Cheerleading Application.
