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."

What do think of this stink over pink? A University of Iowa professor triggered a ruckus when she objected to the hue of the locker room for visiting men's football team. It's the same shade as bubblegum. Jill Gaulding said it sent a misogynistic message and represented "a serious obstacle to gender equity on campus." Hawkeye fans responded by buying lots of pink merchadise -- toilet seats, coffee cups, women's underwear -- and sending her hundreds of emails. Story.
