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."
Tip on posting comments: After you click a comment link, select "other" or "anonymous" in the pop-up box. That way, you won't be asked for a password.

Example Two comes from "the nearly famous case of the copulating coeds," as Grogan tags the tale of Penn students coupling in a dorm window.
He writes: "She has a lawyer papering the path to a lawsuit, telling us how emotionally shattered she is because someone noticed and snapped a photo? Oh, brother. She even filed a complaint with the university, claiming her privacy was invaded. Hello? Earth to Miss Modesty? Ya think your own behavior might have had anything to do with this?"
Early Word: Gotta agree. Reminds me of suing McDonald's for not warning you coffee can be hot. Glass windows are see-through? Who knew!
