Where the girls are

COEUR d'ALENE - Time to celebrate, fellas. There are lots of ladies in Kootenai County.

Unlike the rest of the state, our county boasts more women than men, according to new estimates released by the U.S. Census.

Last year's count reveals that the county's 138,494 residents are comprised of 70,237 women and 68,257 men. Alecia Warren, CDA Press

A commenter on the press site says, "You can pretty much bet the excess female folk are over 70. Eeewwwwww ...."

Hmm... here I was thinking all those ladies most likely raised the collective IQ of the county. What do you think?
