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."

Question for 'Survivor' Fans Would You Have Given Up the Car? Cindy won a challenge and a Pontiac Torrent. Then host Jeff Probst gave her a provocative choice. Of 10 previous car winners, not one ever won the $1 million final prize, he said. So, would she like to expel the curse by giving a car to each of her four remaining rivals instead? More Pontiacs were driven up the road. She thought it over. She'd like to, she said ... but there were no guarantees, and why couldn't see be the first to beat the curse? She kept the car.
Curse won. Cindy got voted out.
Would you have done the same thing? I think I would have let the others have the cars.
