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."

Who hates Wing Bowl? Yes, it's true, Wing Bowl is not a universally beloved event! Witness this letter discovered in the Inquirer's archives:

How about equal time on the front page of The Inquirer for a tribute to those who help make our society better? Elizabeth A. Corcoran, Wildwood Crest
