Karl went to my high school, St Joseph’s which has some pretty famous alumni in its short history:
John Rasnick, DE for Tech
David Rasnick, Came up with the AIDS Concoction, Bill Todd, Top Most Influential in GA and Tech Professor in Schiller, Cynthia McKinney... famous... and of course me whose daughter got out and now is in charge of engineering for the east coast of a major corporation and who has 11 grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles who got out and half from St. Joe’s!
