Carl Guderian's Thumbnail Bio

Me, Jim, and DaveI'm the one in the middle. The three of us were making a joyous noise for "Bob" at the Ku Klux Klan rally 1 July 1990. We played kazoos and sang stirring marching song such as "Der Fuehrer's Face" and "Springtime for Hitler." There were groups like ACT-UP and various local committees for peace and justice protesting the march (more power to 'em), but we were the only ones who really pissed the Klans off. Then, two of us drove to a a party in Dallas. After that, everything was different.






Here's a more recent picture of me (from Feb 2001; my hair's much longer now - mid-2004):
