Cut the Commission?

This morning's Union Leader suggests a cut in the state budget, the Commission on the Status of Women:

Gov. John Lynch last week ordered the commission to return to the general fund $6,556 to help fill the estimated $250 million hole in the state budget. Legislators ought to take the obvious next step and decommission the commission. Its existence is no longer justified.

While they are at it, they can zero out the Commission on the Status of Men, too. This gem was created after men's advocates complained for years that it was unfair for the state to have a Commission on the Status of Women but no similar commission for men. Let's be fair and eliminate both of them. Neither is needed.
