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.

His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

High-Speed Dunkin' Donuts Truck Chase A police pursuit through Fairmount Park, including across a baseball field, involved as many as 13 police cars this morning, according to TV reports. About 4 a.m., a driver left his truck running at 52d and Lancaster, when a man jumped inside and sped away. During the chase, a shot was fired, but no one was injured, KYW-TV (Ch. 3) is reporting. The chase ended on the 1700 block of Peach Street when the truck struck one of the police cars.
