A colleague sends me a gem of a memo from his Library Director:

Subject: The great "black pen" controversy...

…doesn’t exist except in the minds who are trying to make a big deal out of it. First – black pens are more expensive than blue pens and using blue pens makes it easier to determine if a document is an original. The decision was just that simple and it makes no sense to stock both.

Additional decisions like this regarding office and library supplies will continue on a case-by-case basis. We will condense our supply offerings so that we can make the best use of our supply budgets.
