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.
