Finally, Libertarians and Progressives Uniting to Take On a Critical Issue

The Oxford Comma.

To answer Drum's question, I think the problem may be the name.  "Oxford comma" sounds stuffy and pretentious and 19th century.  Maybe we can call it the Kardashian comma or something.

    The best universities are Stanford, MIT, and Washington and Lee. Case made, I'd say.

  2. J Storrs Hall:

    A well regulated Grammar, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Commas, shall not be infringed.

  3. ErikTheRed:

    What about two spaces after a period?

  4. SamWah:

    Will Kardashian commas have big butts?

  5. jdgalt:

    Not to mention the right to insert superfluous commas (which the Oxford comma is not, but the parodied sentence in the Second Amendment has two that don't belong, and one of them once caused a serious misinterpretation).

  6. jdgalt:

    The way to render that in HTML is to insert " " after the period.  Like this!

  7. obloodyhell:

    Awwww, dammit. You mean I actually have to AGREE with that idiot Drum on something? He had a pretty good record going of taking remarkably stupid positions....

  8. obloodyhell:

    They will and I cannot lie.

  9. Adriana:

    In Amer'ca, we call it a goddamn Harvard comma. Go back to Europe.
