The good ol' boys aren't running a Texas town, but the good ol' gals are.

Peggy Baer is the mayor of the Panhandle town of McLean and she leads a five-woman board of aldermen.

Yes, they're still officially called aldermen.

The city secretary, justice of the peace and postmaster also are women.

Postmaster Diane Manuel jokes that she knows why women run her town.

She says they have people skills and are -- quote -- "a lot better to look at than most guys."
