In the Twin Falls Times-News, columnist/opinionator Steve Crump claims you're not a real Idahoan unless you've been to 10 places he lists in today's column, including Fighting Creek and Desmet. Have you ever wondered how Fighting Creek got its name? Steve provides the answer: "In 1902, when the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation was first opened for homesteading, the settlers had a big dance. Two of the women at the dance got into a hair-pulling, face-clawing set-to. The next day during a discussion about a suitable name for the settlement, a man — of course — suggested Fighting Creek. Guys love chick fights." You can see what Steve says re: the other places including how Desmet got its name here.

Question: Do guys really love chick fights?
