    I am always amused when I see the bumping of elbows as the new chic way to greet. Isn’t some of the advice to cough or sneeze into said elbows? Surely then you would want to avoid a strangers elbows like the plague, and not offer your own for the same reason we should be wearing masks.

    Then again, maybe such august personages don’t do anything as plebian as sneeze.
