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."

Philly Gets Its First New $10 Bill This Morning
It was used by Federal Reserve official Milissa Tadeo (above) about 11 a.m. to buy a ticket at the National Constitution Center. Visitors got to see some of the new bills, and hear her and Secret Service members talks about the bill's new features to thwart counterfeiters. "No, no samples," said a spokeswoman for the Fed over the phone. "That's the most frequently asked question, by the way." Earlier today, the National Archives in Washington became the site where the first new sawbuck was put into circulation, at a gift shop ceremony. The Fed is distributing the bills to area banks, beginning today, and customers could start seeing them next week. New on the notes: shades of orange, yellow and red in the background ... the phrase "We the People" from the Constitution (why the archives and our center were selected) ... a Statue of Liberty torch ... a color-changing "10" in the front lower right corner ... a faint off-set image of Alexander Hamilton ... a security thread that reads "U-S-A Ten" when held to the light. Next up to be changed: the $100 bill. No changes in the works for 1's and 5's. And don't worry: Old 10's are still good. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
