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."

Idiot of the Week Poll No. 2 

Pittsburgh police officer inspects sports memorabilia.

Nobody jumped into a cage with lions, and Terrell Owens made more circumspect attire choices. (See last week's poll.) But this week still has a generous dose of dubious decisions. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gets on the world's fastest street-legal brand of motorcycle without a helmet and tackles a windshield with his face. A man decides the way to a woman's heart was to disrobe, jump out a window and get chased by a dude with a gun. A California man, believing his gold-detecting device, hires men to keep digging and digging and digging and digging and digging. Rightie writer Ann Coulter ticks off even fellow conservs by ripping 9/11 widows. A Holocaust-denying Wisconsin farmer will soon learn there's no demand for an Adolf Hitler theme park. Then there's the bank robber who left his birth certificate behind, prompting a cop to say, "That's very helpful." And, finally, somebody actually stole not just one Cheaper by the Dozen DVD, but 270! Now it's up to you: Vote!
