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."

That's Happening Here?
6 Quick Stories
Kimmel Center sues architect over delays. Not Verizon Hall's questionable acoustics. No damages were specified, but cited was a loss of $23 million. More. ... A gender bender for "Cuckoo's Nest." Cherry Hill High School East students will do the first-ever all-female version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The playwright even helped with revisions, saying it's "an idea whose time has come." More. ... "Stupid is forever!"
Another gem from that human quotebook, John Chaney, Temple's irascible basketball coach. In the final two minutes of Sunday's home game, Chaney grabbed a mike after someone tossed a breath mint onto the court. Don't behave like "idiots," he said to a student section. "It is not Temple's way... to not have manners. Always remember: Stupid is forever. You can't change stupidity." More. ... North America's largest trove of Islamic manuscripts is at Princeton. The university is starting an ambitious project to categorize the collection's 10,000 texts, and digitize and post online about 200 of the most important works. More. ... Miami Beach loves a stunning facade that once was Norristown's. In 1983, the borough lost out when what was left of the Norris Theater was leveled for a McDonald's. The window grille facade with its six stained-glass windows (pictures shows three) is "a masterwork of its kind," said art collector Micky Wolfson Jr., who bought the marvel for a museum with his name, says an Inquirer article. "It was a tragedy," said the chairman of a merchants group. ... More students speak up at parent-teacher conferences. It's a national trend, even for elementary schoolers, like Olivia Mcfadden of Haddonfield. Gets kids more invested in learning, backers say. Council Rock, Central Bucks, Penn Delco and Mount Holly are among area districts taking part. More.
