Yes, we know this is Arizona. And yes, part of the deal is politics always surrounds our Tucson Unified School District. Can't we stay away from religion? At least that's what folks at Weekly World Central were thinking when we saw this on TUSD's Facebook page:

Yes, Ben Carson has an amazing story, but right now he's the darling of the political right. His appearance at last week's National Prayer Breakfast has put him front and center and now there's talk he's a presidential contender. Fox News has been drooling over Carson this week, because there's nothing like watching the president get lectured at a nonpartisan event.

On Hannity, Carson said he'd run for president "If the Lord grabbed me by the collar and made me do it, I would."
