Stockholm syndrome

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

After a routine trip to the doctor this week, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was diagnosed with Stockholm syndrome. Having never been held captive in a hostage situation, it is unclear how Smith developed the syndrome, but doctors stressed that the lab results were conclusive. The condition is not believed to be life-threatening. Although there is no known cure for Stockholm syndrome, Rev. Smith is being advised to take a few days off from work, get plenty of bed rest, and avoid any potential hostage situations or trips to Scandinavia over the next six months.
