David Simon: Duckpin bowling

David Simon, television writer and producer and creator of 'The Wire' and 'Treme' "It's dying and we need a local Marshall Plan to save the remaining alleys, but never take for granted that we had duckpin when the rest of the world only knew from tenpin. My New York cousins only wanted to duckpin bowl when they came south; they thought it primitive cool, even exotic."Christopher T. Assaf, Baltimore Sun
