    Dr. Carson’s successes…………

    Although Carson was able to separate the boys, they were both left profoundly disabled. The Associated Press reported, in 1989, two years after the separation, that Patrick remained in a “vegetative state”, following the surgery.2 He never came out of his coma. According to a 2015 Washington Post article, he “died sometime in the last decade.”3

    Benjamin recovered to a certain extent.2 The Washington Post reported that Peter Parlagi, the twins’ younger half-brother, said their father was emotionally unable to ever handle them, or share in their care.3 He said the twin’s father became an alcoholic, spent all the couple’s funds, and left their mother destitute and alone. She was forced to institutionalize them.

    In a 1993 interview, their mother, Theresia Binder, described guilt for agreeing to the operation that ruined the boys’ prospect of ever having any quality of life….Wikipedia……………………. In 2003, Carson was one of the lead surgeons attempting to separate 29-year old Iranian Siamese twins Ladan and Laleh Bijani. Both women, who had achieved law degrees, died. There was angry reproach from a family member, as reported by the UK Guardian newspaper.

    In 2004, Carson led a team attempting to separate infants Lea and Tabea Block. Tabea died within hours of surgery. Lea appears healthy in this 2009 photograph at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.

    Of the five sets of Siamese twins, or 10 individuals, which Carson surgically attempted to separate, five people died and two were institutionalized with serious neurological damage. According to the New York Times, those results are not anymore stellar than the results dating back to the 1920s.……………………… http://wallstreetonparade.com/2015/11/ben-carsons-other-credibility-problem-su

    No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.…………….

    Now the bricks lay on Grand Street

    Where the neon madmen climb

    They all fall there so perfectly

    It all seems so well timed

    An’ here I sit so patiently

    Waiting to find out what price

    You have to pay to get out of

    Going through all these things twice

    Oh, Mama, can this really be the end

    To be stuck inside of Mobile

    With the Memphis blues again
