Letter carrier tell all

Minneapolis Star Tribune reports on Minneapolis mailman Vincent Wyckoff and his book,"Beware of Cat and Other Encounters of a Letter Carrier."

"On any given day, I probably talk to more dogs than people," writes Wyckoff, 54, but "most of what I've discovered has come from talking to people. ... Walk through someone's life once a day, year after year after year, and you're bound to learn a few things."

According to the paper, "Over a 15-year period, Wyckoff got to know all of his 500 householders, their birthdays, eccentricities, tastes in magazines, tax and domestic troubles, dogs and, yes, the attack cat of the title. He's pushed cars out of snowbanks, played Santa Claus to kids, gone to family celebrations and children's ballgames."
