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."

Bush: Wowie, Like Oil's Not the Only Energy Source?! The Prez says coming energy breakthroughs will "startle" most Americans. My reaction: Why does he talk to us like we're uninformed children? Battery-powered cars? Car fuel from crops? Solar energy? America's been hearing about such innovations for decades! What would be startling would an administration truly making a full-fledged effort to end that "addiction" to foreign oil he's starting to worry about, a diagnosis that isn't news to anybody either. George, you want to jump to the front of the parade? Fine, take the baton. But don't pretend the band wasn't playing long before you heard footsteps. Critics say your plan should also embrace stronger conservation measures.
