According to CNN – common forms of greeting, such as handshakes and kisses on the cheek, are coming under scrutiny as the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, steadily spreads around the world.

Resident CNN doc Sanjay Gupta tweet-advocates the elbow bump….yup bumping elbows to avoid germs transmitted through handshakes and kisses!

May we suggest the Namaste instead? Gracious, humble, thousands of years old tradition…and as this writer suggests – the great equalizer – in these troubling times for social etiquette!
