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."

Fox's '24' Never Lets Up
Every week, some cast member dies (or seems to ... see ya, Defense Secretary Heller) and another level of conspiracy gets revealed (no, it's not Russian terrorists, it's government people, wait, it's the vice president, no it's the president, no it's yet another group controlling him ... holy Manchurian Candidate, maybe). Great show, agrees an ex-Inky scribe with Entertainment Weekly. Still, I got one gripe: Uh, like Audrey has an important artery severed, so much she'll bleed to death in three minutes, and she's losing buckets of blood, but Dr. Jack Bauer's whips on a magic tourniquet, enabling her to hold a gun in her bloodless limbs? Unless ... she's a vampire? Plot twist! Didn't see that coming, did you?
