The Uncommon Comma

No Commoners Here

My all-time favorite cartoon appeared in The New Yorker a few decades ago. A woman in a long formal gown and elbow-length gloves is at a posh party, brandishing one of those long-stemmed cigarette holders common among aristocrats in the day, her face sour with hauteur. Next to her is a tuxedoed gent, hands clasped behind his back, gazing imperiously at nothing. “Tell me,” says the lady, her expression unchanging, “what do you think of the comma?”
