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."

Who's Not Sick of N.J. Race? If you were a multimillionaire, would you blow off a big chunk of your fortune running for governor of New Jersey? Or any state?
Especially, if all the money was going for catty ads everyone just tunes out? (He wants taxpayers to pay for polluted stem cells to have a right to life! Yeah, but he wants to cut property taxes for corrupt officials! Or something like that.)
Now, get this, as if the snippiness wasn't annoying enough, the ex-wife is getting into the fray. "He'll probably let New Jersey down, too," said Joanne Corzine, married to Democratic Sen. John Corzine for 33 years. (That's her in 2000, smiling at then-Gov. Jim McGreevey.) See stories: The ex-wife. The spending.
Had enough? Can't wait for Tuesday's election, so the ads are finally finished?
