The Easiest Way to Get the Wrong Answer …

… is to ask the wrong question.

The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that a bill introduced in the Connecticut legislature would allow women to skip the Candidate Physical Ability Test for firefighters and qualify with a test with “revised physical standards.” It seems that the Democrats who have authored the bill are looking for an answer to the question “How do we make fire departments more diverse?”

Perhaps Connecticut should consider the question “How do we make our fire departments more effective?”
