    Very expensive punctuation error, Don especially would appreciate

    Especially for Don. Flash is up there as well.

    Though not Blackjack related, thought, Don especially, would enjoy this.

    I was in a similar spat about 15 years or so ago. Amount involved was only about 200k. The error was somewhat more egregious, and the battle was easy.

    Yes, I'm aware of this. Norm also sent it to me, because, well, Norm and I differ on the use of the Oxford comma. I always use it. Helps to avoid the type of error that led to the lawsuit and also to some slightly hilarious misinterpretations, such as: "He said that the people he most admired were his parents, Jesus and Mary."

    Your example is the wrong Testament for Freightman

    So what's the over/under on how many pages this thread will go?

    Regardless, it doesn't hurt to read. I have a phenomenal 1 liner for Dons answer, but this time, I'm worried about starting the wrong kind of discussion. And besides, this thread shoulspd stay short as long as I don't throw in the 1 liner.
