    Bad timing, to say the least. Speaking only selfishly, I hope we’ll still be able to benefit from your input.


    1. Oh yeah. This was really about the Oxford comma. I’m more of an AP man myself.

    Just a waste of energy.

    Hmmm, is this a follow-up comment on Mike Updegraf’s blog? Ha, ha.
    My brain needs all the commas possible to keep from being muddled!☺ …Sort of like a little wedge to keep my saw from getting pinched in a kerf, it keeps my thoughts flowing smoothly.
