Bill Duck began contributing to Camden Chat when it was distributed monthly on cuneiform tablets and the Orioles played on a Revolutionary War military training field they would have to sweep for broken glass before each inning. He's a dad, a husband, a high school history teacher, a wrestling tournament director, a political media consultant and generally a nice guy. Except when it comes to opera. He hates opera. And Pittsburgh. Hates that, too.
