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.

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.

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.

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.

IF VINCE FUMO has his way, he'll walk out of prison in less than a year, buy a new house in the Florida Keys, rehabilitate his farm on the Susquehanna River and score a million-dollar yacht if he's able to be relieved of restitution payments he owes. He'll also pen a book, tentatively titled The Senator , with freelance journalist Ralph Cipriano, use lobbying in Harrisburg as a supplemental source of income and exact revenge against prosecutors and political allies who crossed him, according to a court filing from U.S. attorneys released late last week.

DEAR ABBY : A couple of years ago, my husband of 30 years became distant. He didn't want to touch me, talk to me or spend time with me. I was devastated. An old boyfriend emailed me to offer condolences on the death of my brother. There were just chatty emails at the beginning. The emails started becoming more intimate, as I was fed by his seeming "love" for me. He told me I was his "soul mate" and I fell for it. I took risks to see him, eventually slept with him and lied to everyone I know in the process.

You don't have to be a student of military conflict to know that America's high opinion of our troops, which soared during the World Wars and the Korean conflict, plunged during the Vietnam era. Returning soldiers were held accountable for the president's decisions. Some have never recovered from feeling the contempt of their countrymen for being in the wrong war, under the wrong leader. Things couldn't be more different today. Regardless of where individuals stand in their opinion of the conflicts in the Middle East, there's a national sense that the men and women fighting there are not to be blamed for it, but honored for having signed up. To get a sense of how everyday Americans stand behind our men and women in uniform, scroll through a website like troopssupport.com . It's a directory of organizations that provide everything from free lawn care and baby showers for veterans and their families to job training and new homes for soldiers wounded in action.

Vince Fumo's attorneys blasted federal prosecutors Friday in a court filing for "Orwellian" behavior when they published excerpts from Fumo's emails last week. While acknowledging the feds had the legal right to do so - and inmates are aware their communications may be monitored - the defense accused prosecutors of "intrusive surveillance" and criticized its "eleventh-hour use" less than two weeks before Fumo's resentencing on Wednesday. Prosecutors said in court papers on Oct. 28 that a trove of emails sent by Fumo between April and October showed he was "wholly unrepentant, virulently hostile toward the prosecutors ... and itching to write a book and exact revenge" on those who opposed him. But the defense said yesterday the feds' portrayal was "skewed" and based on cherry-picking emails to support their case that Fumo was a "conniving megalomaniac anxious to return to a life of crime ... while enjoying the restfulness" of life behind bars.

After a litany of startling revelations about the National Security Agency's bulk collection of e-mail and more, most Americans will be surprised that their electronic communications are in some ways more vulnerable to snooping by garden-variety government officials. A woefully outdated law allows agencies ranging from local district attorneys' offices to the IRS to pore over the contents of e-mails without seeking court approval. The law governing e-mail access dates back to the primordial age of the technology, in 1986, when the few who used it had to download messages onto their gigantic home or office computers.

TRENTON - The legislative committee investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures released new documents Monday that show more communications involving Gov. Christie's former campaign manager than previously disclosed. The e-mails and text messages, filed with Superior Court, indicate that the campaign manager, Bill Stepien, was notified of the Fort Lee mayor's frustration with the lane closures while they were underway in September. They do not show exactly what Stepien knew about the lane closures, or include new revelations about the incident.

TRENTON - A now-fired aide to Gov. Christie and a former official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey didn't limit their talk of "traffic problems" to Fort Lee: They used the same line while mocking a rabbi, according to newly unredacted documents in the probe into the George Washington Bridge controversy. The material, made public Thursday, was provided to lawmakers by the former Port Authority official, David Wildstein. It does not contain any evidence directly connecting Christie to the September lane closures at the bridge.

The defense in the $6.7 million fraud trial of charter school founder Dorothy June Brown rested Monday without calling Brown or her two codefendants to testify. But before Brown's attorneys ended their side of the case, they put on the stand a former Agora Cyber Charter School parent who is being sued for defamation by Brown. Gladys Stefany testified that she had not written a racist e-mail about Brown, even though she said in a 2010 deposition for the defamation case that she had. Stefany, who is diabetic, told federal jurors that she had been in the deposition for several hours and had not eaten.

CAMDEN More than 600 people who preregistered for a combined job fair and political rally hosted by Camden mayoral candidate Amir Khan received e-mails telling them they would get priority hiring if they volunteered for his campaign. The e-mail, provided to The Inquirer, told job applicants who filled out a preapplication form online that they would be "first in line for receiving a position" based on agreement to volunteer for the event Monday, and "for election work" on Wednesday and Nov. 5. The event was a ribbon-cutting for Acts Industries L.L.C., a maker of modular housing units, which says it will employ as many as 1,000 people in assembly-line work at $15 an hour, with the first 300 to 400 hired in the next three to four months, owners say. Khan, who knows Acts owner Irv Richter and helped arrange bringing the business to Camden, hosted the event, which drew thousands.

INDIANAPOLIS - Purdue University President Mitch Daniels fended off calls for his ouster Wednesday and denied trying to quash academic freedom while serving as Indiana's governor, a day after an Associated Press report cited e-mails in which he opposed use of a book by historian and antiwar activist Howard Zinn. Conservative free-speech advocates rose to his defense, saying it was appropriate for Daniels to express concern about what was taught in public institutions. E-mails published Tuesday by the AP show that Daniels tried to ensure Zinn's book was not used in Indiana's K-12 and college classrooms and that he wanted to "disqualify the propaganda" he said was being taught to teachers in training at Indiana's colleges.

HARRISBURG - A Corbett cabinet member's undoing was an e-mail exchange with his wife about last month's falcon-banding event at the Capitol complex. Gov. Corbett on Thursday announced in a tersely worded news release that he had asked for Richard Allan's resignation as secretary of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. He did not identify a reason. The Inquirer reported that Allan, who is white, was fired for having used what could be perceived as racially charged language in an e-mail to describe a black employee in another department.

WASHINGTON - Officers with a finger on the trigger of the Air Force's most powerful nuclear missiles are complaining of a wide array of morale-sapping pressures, according to internal e-mails obtained by the Associated Press. The complaints shed fresh light on dissatisfactions roiling this critical arm of the Air Force, an undercurrent that has captured the attention of the service's leaders. Key themes among the complaints include working under "poor leadership" and being stuck in "dead-end careers" in nuclear weapons, one e-mail said.
