This is the end of the office as we know it

If and when you return to your office after the novel coronavirus pandemic, you’ll probably notice some differences.
Upon entering your building, the doors may open automatically so you don’t have to touch the handles. Before you board your elevator, you might tell the elevator where you’d like to go, rather than pressing the many buttons within the elevator.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is going to need all the help he can get if he wants to defeat President Donald Trump in November.

Biden is confused, doesn’t know where he is half the time, and now needs his wife, Jill, to avoid senior moments. He thinks he’s running for the U.S. Senate, you all saw that error, and now is presiding over a deflated Democratic Party.
