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."

Makes you wonder what protect us most: government measures or lack of terrorists? More. ... A $2.2 million discrepancy in reported campaign contributions was an honest mistake, says a spokesman for U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach. "This goes beyond sloppy accounting," said Lower Merion attorney Lois Murphy, who filed a complaint and may run against the Pa. Republican next year. More. ... Peco customers aren't the only ones who will pay $50 to $100 more each month this winter because of higher natural gas prices. Expect announcements PGW and PSE&G any time. More. ... It took 18 months for two Philly police officers to get arrested and charged with assault and other offenses for an alleged attack on a plainclothes officer at the building where MTV's Real World was being taped. More. See also Tom Ferrick's column, "Case shows need to police the police," about a costly officer with possible "anger issues."
