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."

Franklin Invented Plastic Pizza-Box-Lid Holder-Upper? Yes, he did, according to David Letterman last night, who had a tribute (of sorts) in honor of the 300th anniversary of the Philly Founding Father's birth. Besides bifocals, Franklin also invented the self-cleaning oven and Pop-Tarts. Who knew? You see it? What else did Dave say Ben invented?
