Ben Carson's time as someone to take seriously is over

It was sad to see formerly respected Dr. Ben Carson go on television and so thoroughly destroy any credibility he had as a person ("Dr. Ben Carson apologizes, offers to withdraw from Hopkins speech" Mar 29). But it seems to shame and dishonor is a common path followed by so many "conservatives." Oh well, at least we'll have fond memories of the man — sort of. Now that it looks like his tenure as someone to take seriously is over, maybe he should team up with Sheila Dixon.
