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."

We've Been Duped by the President?!
No, not Bush. Talking about Fox's 24, of course. President Weenie / Manilow / Milquetoast / Tricky Dicky Jr. is behind the terrorist plot! Psssshoooooo. That's the air going out of this fan's balloon. It's ridiculous. Guy hems and haws, and pleads for advice, and all along he's a mastermind? A top aide acts sneaky around the Prez and later commits suicide, but all along they were in cahoots? And what's he got to gain? He's already the President! What, he's some Manchurian Candidate? So next week he'll peel off his latex face and, gasp, it's really Osama bin Ladin? Actually, his face does look rather rubbery. And he does seem to have sworn off intimacy with his wife ... Hmmm. Better be a good explanation come next Monday night.
