Opinions: Learning to live inside our means

RICKETSON: The Nov. 6 issue of New York magazine featured two articles about New Yorkers and their spending habits.

Opinions: Women should be given a fair shot at combat

PATE: To quote from "The Simpsons," which is more or less the summation of all human knowledge: "Things sure have changed; we have women drivers, even women voters ... why not women soldiers?"

Actually, the U.S. military, with about 20 percent women, is one of the most gender-integrated in the world. The current controversy is whether or not to allow women into combat roles.

This one should be a no-brainer. As long as they can do the job adequately, there are only slim grounds for denying women this right of citizenship.
