It may be a bit late for Friday, but every serious comma user should
take a look at this:

I've always wondered why certain editors felt it necessary to add
ambiguity, or at least increase the need for two-pass parsing, by
eliminating my perfectly good commas.

There are even a few published writers, who use a comma as I just did!

To me, AP's not using the serial comma is a serious deficit. It's a
barrier to clear writing, in my opinion.
