Immigrant’s story: when he was “new” (newly arrived in the country) he tried to help a woman who was struggling to get on the bus. But the woman didn’t like it — what did he think he was trying to do? In his country, people helped people, he said, because they had to. Not like here. That woman was so angry, he laughed.

Let me put it this way, said attendant, it’s not that I believe in the mainstream so much, but you have to look at everything critically, because everyone’s got something to sell. And that’s Big Pharma, of course, but that’s also the guy who writes the alternative medicine bulletin and sells supplements that aren’t FDA approved. Everyone’s got something to sell.
