CAITLIN FLANAGAN has twin sons, a husband, an advanced degree, a book contract and - here is the important part - a nanny. She also has a job writing for The Atlantic magazine, most often about women's issues, and this month she has written the cover story: "Dispatches from the Nanny Wars: How Serfdom Saved the Women's Movement." Flanagan is writing a book about modern motherhood, and this article appears to be a sort of dispatch on "what I have learned so far." In it, she indicts women, and the women's movement, for the poor pay and treatment of the immigrant women some of us hire to clean our houses and take care of our kids while we are out seeking self-fulfillment in the workplace.

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- The newest recruits in the federal government's wildfire prevention program toil all day in the blazing sun and rarely need a break. They also make dandy sweaters. Angora and Nubian goats -- 600 of them -- have been trucked 175 miles from the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona to Prescott National Forest. Their assignment is to chomp on the scrub brush that stokes small fires into roaring infernos. "They're lean, mean, eating machines," says Mike Creach of the U.S. Forest Service, who is overseeing the six-month experiment.

The search lasted more than an hour, the pickup rumbling up and over the barren, rocky hills. Then, one appeared, a small black form peeking over the ridge at its audience. Another joined it, and another. Within minutes yesterday morning, all 18 had emerged - some black, some white, some diminutive, some bulging with muscles, a few even sporting great, curling horns. The feral goats were on the move. "Hah, hah, hah, them little suckers," said a grinning Gene Larrick, manager of the LaFarge Quarry a few miles outside of Westminster, where the wild billies and nannies make their home.
