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."

Hatching a new theory about "Lost." My friend John, who loves to speculate and prognosticate, phoned to a share colleague's brainstorm. Wednesday's show ended intimating an imminent "incident" because a character tinkered with a computer. Sounded vague, but very menacing.
Well, the coworker recalled some clues: A mention of "blast doors," rigged to drop in an emergency. The "quarantine" signs on the inside of doors, as if the jungle was once contaminated. Could mean some kind of radiation accident, either a leak or a bomb.
Nah, that could ruin the show, my wife, Anne, thinks. More likely the threats are all lies, part of a fakeout psychological test cooked up by the scientists who turned this isle into a lab.
What do you think? And hasn't the show gotten much better in recent weeks?
