One desirable outcome from all these “groping” and “inappropriate touching” scandals crowding the ethernet and the airwaves these days would be if all of the politicians, celebrities, academics and business people would start shying away from the obligatory “hugs” when they greet each other or introduce each other in a public setting.  I have long thought it absurd and mildly grotesque that grown adults who barely know each other, aren’t related and didn’t , for example, serve in combat or survive some horrible experience together would engage in the perfunctory “hug” up there on stage, often, if it’s male and female, accompanied by the peck on the cheek.
