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."

Sky's No Limit for Pink 

That's Doylestown's phenominatrix looming at 11th and Vine on a billboard for a star-studded anti-AIDS campaign to wake up more kids. Her online message: "Unprotected sex is like Russian roulette, there might be a bullet in the chamber." Monday, she'll be on The Today Show, promoting I'm Not Dead, her new CD, which arrives in stores Tuesday. It dispenses a "gleeful, in-your-face audacity," writes Rolling Stone. Of mocking the likes of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears on "Stupid Girls," Pink told the mag, "I was put on this Earth to make fun of myself and other people." You can see that video and supposedly hear more songs at mtv.com's The Leak (no such luck on my PC). One song's especially risque (seems "Fingers" is now called "U + Ur Hand") and she's even created a salacious CD not to be heard outside her own boudoir, an online report says. Then from Hollywood comes word that Pink's in the running to play iconic rauc-star Janis Joplin in The Gospel According to Janis. Director Penelope Spheeris (Wayne's World) wants someone with pipes who can channel the spirit for the film, which will go up against another Joplin biopic, starring Renee Zellweger. Whew.
