To my parents, Ayn Rand and God - The Oxford Comma

We had an interesting argument while reviewing some screen mockups at work, today. I had always thought using a comma before the word "and" was a mistake. Turns out that, in America, it isn't -- it's even a recommended practice.

For a fascinating overview, read Wikipedia's entry for the Oxford Comma.

I'm getting old -- no doubt about it. But I'm quite sure it's the first time I learned about the Oxford comma. Either you confuse me with another comma obsessive weirdo or we talked about a similar, but not identical, subject. In any case, nice to see someone is reading my jabber!
