Joseph McCarthy was a U.S. Senator, better known for his – to put it lightly – "anti-communist suspicions" during the early days of the Cold War.
He was also born, raised, and buried here in the Fox Valley.
On a day leading up to the Republican National Convention, a fan of McCarthy traveling to Minneapolis from the east coast by way of Appleton, stopped at the grave and gifted a rather large bouquet of roses presumably for what would be McCarthy's 100th birthday this year.
A card attached to the arrangement said: "Congratulations, Senator, on being 100 – years old, and percent right."
I'm going to let that speak for itself...
