If we had to make a top ten list of the 10 greatest people from WI, who would be on that list?

Here are my choices;

Lance Sijan
Dick Bong
Joseph McCarthy
Chris Farley

Those are off the top of my head.  Who else can be on the list?

That one is a true badass and would easily make a top 10 list, thanks for adding it.

Just a simple top ten list for famous or semi famous people from WI.

If you say most notorious, then Dahmer might take it.

Most heinous, toss up between Dahmer and Gein.

Bravest?  Hard to determine whether a guy who just would not give up after being captured by the enemy, or a guy who would just not give up in fighting the enemy, it would be tough to determine whether RedCloud or Sijan would win.

Just a broad brush top ten list.

If you didn’t notice, he is second on my list.

He went by Dick.
