In Lotsee, Okla., you won’t see lots of people

The U.S. Census Bureau says the population of Lotsee dropped substantially between 2000 and 2010. From 11 to 2.

Yep. Lotsee has a grand population of two people.

“In 2010, the only residents were Lotsee Spradling, daughter of the founder, and her husband Mike. They have no plans to dissolve the town.”

Well, heck. Why should the town’s owner dissolve the town? It’s an inheritance.

“The entire town is a 2,000 acres (8.1 km2) family-owned cattle and pecan ranch, the Flying G Ranch, whose owner, George Campbell, incorporated it in 1963.” (Same link.)

Of course, a small population never stops federal bureaucrats from making determinations on racial makeup, per capita income, poverty levels and such.

From 2000 census figures:

“As of the census of 2000, there were 11 people, 3 households, and 3 families residing in the town. The population density was 576.1 people per square mile (212.4/km²). There were 3 housing units at an average density of 157.1 per square mile (57.9/km²). The racial makeup of the town was 27.27% White and 72.73% Native American.

“There were 3 households out of which 33.3% had children under the age of 18 living with them, all were married couples living together, and none were non-families. No households were made up of individuals and none had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 3.67 and the average family size was 3.67.

“In the town, the population was spread out with 27.3% under the age of 18, 36.4% from 25 to 44, and 36.4% from 45 to 64. The median age was 32 years. For every 100 females there were 83.3 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 100.0 males.
“The median income for a household in the town was $152,338, and the median income for a family was $152,338. Males had a median income of $11,250 versus $51,875 for females. The per capita income for the town was $41,917. None of the population and none of the families were below the poverty line.”

Whoo, doggies! See that male-female income disparity? A man’s median income of $11,250, while a woman’s median was $51,875? Where are the protest marches?

Lotsee is a few miles west of Tulsa.
