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."

Love Is Strange, Part 1
"Who Needs Love?" The sign stopped me in my tracks. Professionally printed. Had that "corporate" look. But there it was, perched above a display of paperbacks, bearing such titles as Love Will Tear Us Apart, Ex & the Single Girl, Diary of a Married Call Girl, It's Never Too Late to Be a Bridesmaid, Happiness Sold Separately, Cheating at Solitaire and Heathen Girls. Double take. Sure I've heard some "woe is me, all the good men are dead or married, and they're not so hot either" talk on Dr. Phil or in movies. But never thought of "Who Needs Love?" as a corporately-identified genre. Till now.
