A Conversation

FLG: The comma goes before the conjunction.

Coworker: It is.

FLG: Look right there. You put the comma after "but."

Coworker: That's correct.

FLG: You're the communications person?

Coworker getting agitated: Yes.

FLG: Okay, go check your Strunk & White. Compound sentences are probably discussed somewhere in the first five pages or so. After that send me the corrected version, and I'll read it over.
