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."
Yesterday there was a troupe with no pants. Fear not. New York's Finest quickly ended this threat, arresting eight. The stunt was staged by Improv Everywhere, which says that one of the summons writers was Officer Panton, and that one offender, released without his pants, told it was OK for him to ride home on the subway.
The group has done other dastardly deeds, such as faking a suicide jumper ... four feet off the ground.
