I wonder about that, Dick. Why should a comma *within* a name require a
comma outside and after the name? Can you refer me to an authority on this?
Thanks.

> One usage note, and one only: If there is a comma before the "Inc." or
"Incorporated" (as the case may be), and if the company name is in the
interior of a clause, then you should also place a comma after the "Inc." or
"Incorporated." For example:
>
> "ABC, Inc., was founded in 1942."
>
> NOT:
>
> "ABC, Inc. was founded in 1942."
