Guess The Postie!

An anonymous tip:

    Former Postie here who just read Downie’s book. So, I can’t be the first person to note the “Law and Order”-like ripped from reality quality of some of this fiction. The characters are pretty clear composites of specific people. Now, I can’t be the first person to note this, so I guess you’ve just decided not to dissect who’s who in the book? Which beds actually got made that way?

That reader isn’t the only one wondering. From Roll Call‘s review of Len Downie’s “Rules of the Game”:

    Speaking of promiscuity, however, Page’s reporting colleague Mark Daniels is a more compelling character — and Roll Call would love to know which Washington Post reporter he is modeled on.
