    Do not do not do NOT read them.

    You already know that, of course.

    Go ahead and read it.

    Just don't tell him that you did.

    This way you will know what he is really up to :eusa_angel:

    Ed, what do think of Keith Olbermann reading Mark Sanford's email letters to an audience of millions?

    Bones, has he recently move out? Quote: "literally taking just what he had to have..." suggests a sudden and unexplained departure. Do people want their written words be read? Does someone leave a journal lying out expecting that it won't? Isn' it likely that it is subconsciously a tacit explanation of the why of past behaviour?

    As a parent you have the RIGHT to read the journal.

    He may have left it there for you to read.

    And to see if you care enough to want to know about certain aspects of his life.

    I think it's disgusting.

    I think the invasion of even public figures private lives is entirely disgusting.

    And what's more, I think people who love this stuff are disgusting people who are not to be trusted.

    Could be his motive, AH.

    Still wrong to read it without his permission, in my opinion.

    If he left it to be read, then Stroll will be manipulated if she does read it.

    Nothing good can come from this for Stroll, either way.

    She ought to mail those journals to he son unread and tell him that she didn't read them, too.

    They're an emotional IED in her hands
