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."

Giving Google the National Spelling Bee Test
Here's a better idea. You know how Google suggests better spellings? Let's misspell actual spelling bee words and see even know-it-all Google gets them right.
attahnt: did you mean atlanta? ersats: did you mean ersatz? (You go, Google.) caullicle: your search did not match any documents. tichopotamic: did you mean tychopotamic? (You go, Google.) estreep: did you mean street? parrrrus hilltonn: did you mean Paris Hilton? (suspect this alternative might be the default?)
