Save the Oxford comma!

The utter importance of preserving the final serial comma.

From  Bruce Baugh via Patrick Nielson Hayden via Brad DeLong via Jeff Weintraub via Dan Meyer .

"Among those interviewed were his two ex-wives, Kris Kristofferson and Robert Duvall. "

"I'd like to thank my parents, Ayn Rand and God."
