Denyse tells an odd story, and comes back later to clarify

The reason I told the story about my rescue by a bus driver from the snowbank (yes, yes, I should have spelled it out – we artsies sometimes speak in riddles) – is to say that, among humans, altruism can never be reduced to mere Darwinism.

(A bus driver from a snowbank? - that still sounds like a riddle.  Or possibly just bad sentence construction.)  (It is also interesting how she assumes that guys only offer help to females out of altruism - clearly there's no possibility of anything even vaguely Darwinian in that at all.) (/snark)

Actually, in Denyse's case, I think we CAN rule that out.
