Financier Ken Starr, who has been accused of plundering the accounts of his wealthy celebrity clients, sent his wife, stripper Diane Passage, a nice love note from prison. "I have this enormous love for you that grows," he wrote, over the prison e-mail system. "I miss you beyond what any human should feel — and I don't know what to do." Aw. But the sweetness of that e-mail was probably tempered, in Diane's eyes, by the fact that the Post today reports he sent it just days after telling a female friend "I love you" and asking her to find him a "dumb pretty and sexually active" paramour should his wife need replacing.
