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."

3 Tales of Children Who Escaped Disaster
Story No. 1: About 1:30 this morning, a 3-year-old boy was found on a sidewalk in Bryn Mawr. He'd wandered out of a frend's house, where he'd been staying overnight. A mini-mart clerk helped the child, and police solved the mystery.
Story No. 2: Yesterday, after midnight, 6-year-old I'shaia Gary (left), acted like a hero when gunfire her car, according to a WCAU-TV report. "I took my jacket and I put it over me and my little brother because he had glass in his face and I didn't want to touch it because it might hurt his face more," she told Ch. 10. A bullet grazed her stomach, though, and she was treated at a hospital and released. Her mother had briefly gone inside their house when the incident happened.
Story No. 3: On Wednesday, a year-old child in Upper Darby ingested crack cocaine left by a neighbor in the baby's room, the mother told authorities. The neighbor was arrested.
