I've often thought that commas should be placed in pairs, in sentences. Example: Bob, after thinking things over, decided to go to the store. << this would be correct usage of commas, correct? My question is...is this correct or incorrect: But, Bob was right. << does that sentence NOT need a comma at all? And further...how about this sentence? Bob bought oranges, bananas, strawberries, and wine at the store. Would there be no comma after strawberries in this sentence? Finally: Susan, Bob's sister, didn't want to go to the store, afterall. Is a comma necessary after 'store?' It's one of those pet peeves that I run across from time to time, and I wonder...sheesh, what is the RIGHT way to use commas?
