@eli It's amusing that the first sentence in that New York Times article could benefit from an Oxford comma too.

@manton NYT doesn’t use Oxford comma as per their style guide: afterdeadline.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/06/2...

@gerwitz Agreed, I'm on the Oxford comma side as well. Having said that, I feel consistency is far more important, and technically, neither way is right or wrong, just matter of preference.

@oyam nonsense. The serial comma is technically correct.

I will die on this hill.
