When you write a sentence that includes a list of items, the last one typically starts with “and.” A question that has been vexing people for centuries now is whether that last clause should start with a comma – i.e., “, and” rather than just “and.”
That last comma is called the Oxford Comma. Some people love it. Other people hate it.

Long Live the Oxford Comma!
