Why is it that the concept of "privilege" has been created to shelter communications between lawyers and clients and doctors and patients, but the contents of a person's own journal or diary can be used against him in court? I bet more public figures would keep diaries for the sake of history, like President Lincoln did, if they knew their own words couldn't be subpoenaed as evidence.
