While I was in Vegas this weekend covering the World Tea Expo (read the dispatches on Style Council's sister blog, Squid Ink), I saw plenty of this action above. Hand sanitizers dangling from little neon-colored rubber holders on peoples' purses and backpacks and belts. Who knew there was an aftermarket in swine-flu hand sanitizer products?

I suppose that if you carry a Louis Vuitton bag, it is not enough to carry a plain old bottle of Purell antibacterial gel. You must trick it out in some way.
