You know your nation has too much money when — you can worry about how clean your shopping carts are

One Phoenix-area grocer is testing a new system that sanitizes shopping carts from the handle to the wheels. Bashas’ is the first grocer in the Southwest to use purecart at its Bashas’, Food City and AJ’s stores.

It’s not like there’s anything wrong with doing this — a study found “there is more bacteria per square inch on a shopping cart than a door handle, toilet seat or sink drain in a public restroom” — but when you think of the number of places that don’t even have clean drinking water, this just seems … well … an odd priority.
