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."

Photo Phinish: What's Your Caption?
Actuality: Two revelers lay in tomato pulp during the annual food fight, the Tomatina, in the town of Bunol, Spain.

Alternative Reality: What else could a caption for this picture say? (Keep it fit for public consumption, guys.)
Here's mine: Jersey Shore visitors liken effects of red jellyfish stings to laughing gas.
