So according to this source "China's prostitutes are better-trusted than its politicians and scientists". And why-ever not? Though Prostitutes sell their body for money (and-little-birdies-less-innocent-than-I-tell-me-they-do), they make no effort to re-wrap what they do and present it as anything other than what it is. And by the same token scientists undoubtedly sell their minds and we-can-all-see that politicians sell their soul. Considering the saga of Lord Voldemort et al, I must confess methinks our Chinese friends have a good point here!
