There are strange things happening in the news lately ..or are there?
Peter de Silva posted this screenshot and got arguments from all sides. Some languages do not use the Oxford, or serial, comma and take the series from its context. Others think that semicolons would be useful here, but I can't see it. Someone even suggested dropping the "and," which only makes sense if you add the comma, so that may be what they implied. Anyway, we now have an example to replace the strippers, Kennedy and Stalin. -via Doug Tyrrell
