Found a way...

To turn insecure access to LiveJournal into secure access...

www.anonymizer.com lets you purchase a service that proxies your connection securely to an insecure site...This only defeats local IDS and web-caches that would otherwise intercept passwords and contents...the data path from Anonymizer's proxy to your final destination would still be unencrypted.

Anonymizer also does some other cool optional things--hides the title of web pages, keeps things from being cached, replacing cookies with encrypted cookies (the cookies on you system become keys to decrypt the real cookie stored at Anonymizer, which is then sent on to the destination.

Not perfect...everyone go to the suggestion site and ask LiveJournal to enable SSL, at least for paid accounts. (Issue: would have to change LJ clients to support SSL, too...oh, and I don't think the anonymizer trick works for clients.
