LOS ANGELES - Promoters of Michael Jackson's planned 2009 comeback described in emails how they feared for the megastar's stability, saying he was out of shape and consumed with self-doubt. The Los Angeles Times obtained some 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group, which was financing the ill-fated "This Is It" concerts set for London. Some of the emails indicated that executives were concerned that Jackson's planned 50-show stand at AEG's 02 Arena would be an expensive bust.

THE FUN WE'RE all having reading the embarrassing emails of Hollywood big shots is tempered by the fact that we really shouldn't be seeing them at all. The hacked Sony emails arise (very probably) from an attack by a foreign government. It's (very probably) a form a terrorism, it's illegal and death threats have been made, and that's unacceptable. Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said as much recently when he labeled as "morally treasonous" and "spectacularly dishonorable" anyone who publishes the emails.

TAMPA, FLA. - Former CIA director David Petraeus was shocked to learn last summer that his mistress was suspected of sending threatening emails warning another woman to stay away from him, former staff members and friends told the Associated Press on Monday. Petraeus told these associates that his relationship with the second woman, Tampa socialite and former Philadelphian Jill Kelley, was platonic, although his biographer-turned-lover, Paula Broadwell apparently, saw her as a romantic rival.

HARRISBURG - Some of Gov. Corbett 's top deputies seemed to have been quite taken, while he was the state attorney general, with graphic images of unusual objects inserted into women's vaginas. Explicit emails put on display for reporters yesterday by Attorney General Kathleen Kane - in perhaps the strangest political peep show in history - included videos of women masturbating by inserting a bowling pin and a lit cigar. In another video, a man who looks like a race-car driver shakes a bottle of champagne, uncorks it and then inserts the spouting mouth of the bottle into a woman's vagina while others watch.

    HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen Kane will not make public e-mails of current and former state employees that purportedly contain pornographic images, jokes, cartoons, and other private messages, her office said Tuesday. Responding to an Inquirer request for the emails under the state's Right-to-Know law, the office said it had determined the material does not fall under the law's definition of a public record. But the denial also included a disclosure that the office had undertaken an "ongoing internal investigation" regarding those emails and that they may be relevant "to investigations of violations of agency policy and the appropriate use of agency equipment.

VINCE FUMO can't help himself. He's addicted: to his own voice, to power, to life inside his own little world. Those emails from prison that are included in a government memo confirm it. It's the only way to explain them. Emails from April 20 to Oct. 13, that when printed fill 12,068 pages, are part of the feds' case for resentencing The Vince. He's serving 55 months. The feds want at least 15 years for his 137-count conviction for fraud, tax evasion and obstruction.

THE FBI investigation that led to the abrupt resignation of David H. Petraeus as CIA director was triggered by a 37-year-old Tampa woman who grew up in Philadelphia. Jill Kelley, married to a surgeon and mother of three young daughters, complained several months ago that she had received harassing emails from a woman who turned out to be Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' biographer. Born Jill Khawam to a locally prominent Lebanese-American family, past articles and records show that she grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and lived in the area until her mid-20s.

A FEW WORDS come to mind while reflecting on the state porn scandal, which erupted recently when Attorney General Kathleen Kane exposed a ring of state officials exchanging pornographic emails via state computers: Stupid . Maybe "stupid" is not quite right, since these are all relatively high-ranking people, most of whom served under Tom Corbett in the Attorney General's Office. Maybe "arrogant and contemptuous" is better. But "stupid" does cover the notion of anyone working in the 21st century who doesn't understand - or remember - that workplace computers are not private and should not be used for questionable personal reasons.

The release of scores of kinky emails written by a powerful New Jersey Democrat to a lobbyist has sparked an investigation by prosecutors in Sussex County, according to reports. Joe Cryan, an assemblyman from Union County, was a rising star in the state's Democratic Party. Until 2010, he was majority leader in the state assembly and state party chairman. The New York Post published an enormous cache of sexually salacious emails allegedly written by Cryan documenting the details of a sado-masochistic affair he had with lobbyist Karen Golding.

Dave Muha is Big Man on Campus. After lunch in a dining hall at the College of New Jersey, he finds tweets about Muha sightings. He spots his name on T-shirts that raised a record amount of money for last year's freshman class. Every so often, he trends on Twitter as students pray to him, praise him, and plead with him. He can't even buy jeans an hour from the Mercer County campus without being confronted with his fame. "I pass my credit card to the clerk, who looks . . . and then gasps," he said.

MY RELATIVES have always had a slightly dark sense of humor. We tend to treat one another with a sort of "tough-noogies" love, which means that although we get along fairly well, we aren't particularly sensitive to, um, sensitivity. In other words, that pimple on your nose is going to get noticed and it is going to be compared to K2. That slight darkening of the hair above your lip is going to elicit a Zorro-like motion from your brother, the imaginary zigzag of a whip to show you that your mustache is not imaginary.

Prosecutors investigating U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah asked a three-judge federal appeals panel Monday to give them access to seven years of his private e-mails, a position Fattah's lawyer argued violates the protection the Constitution provides Congress. Fattah's attorney, Luther E. Weaver III, backed by House general counsel Kerry W. Kircher, argued that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit panel should block Google Inc. from immediately releasing e-mails that prosecutors have subpoenaed.

PENNSYLVANIA'S six Supreme Court justices have been cleared of sending improper emails in an independent review in the wake of a porn scandal that snared former Justice Seamus McCaffery. Special counsel Robert Byer, of Duane Morris LLP, said he reviewed about 4,800 emails sent to or from the justices and staff in the Attorney General's Office between 2008 and 2012. Excluding those from McCaffery, he concluded that the messages were appropriate and did not reveal any reason for the judges to recuse themselves from any cases.
