Things I would like to see in every newsroom, some essential tools for the multimedia journalist ... oh, and err some toys I would like to play with

# 3: Retractable Papermate Pencil

When it comes to journalistic tools, there are very few as reliable as the retractable Papermate pencil.

It is designed to perfection.

It really is the shorthand writer's best friend. It is slick, well balanced, designed for speed and can only be challenged by one other writing tool - more on that another time.

When you are stuck in court (it's been a while for me, but I've got a good memory), it's the only thing you can rely on.

Cost cutters take note: keep your hands off the Papermate.
