We discuss commas, too.
Readers, when listing items in a series, do you use the “serial comma,” aka the comma before the conjunction? The Chicago Manual of Style says you should. The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage says you should not.

”The shirts come in blue, yellow, and green.” (Chicago rule)
“The shirts come in blue, yellow and green.” (New York Times rule.)
It seems that law review editors allow an author to follow either rule. Which rule do you follow? Click below to indicate your comma preferences. Or use the comments to talk about periods.
