After battling months of crippling depression, Rev. Smith finally took the advice of well-meaning friends this week and turned his frown upside down. Smith’s doctor reports that the three hour surgical procedure went smoothly, and that once the bandages are off, Smith will have the superficial appearance of beaming at the outside world, despite his inward extremes of melancholy. Doctors cautioned Smith that if he ever comes out of his depression and starts smiling again, his facial expression will be registered by most as a deep and bitter scowl.
