Editor’s Corner: Quick tip on commas and dates

From an e-mail to DailyWritingTips.com (Grammar Girl):

Jane wants to know how to use commas with days of the week. Which is correct?

· Tuesday, April 2, 2013

· Tuesday April 2, 2013

With dates, when you have two words next to each other or two numbers next to each other, you need a comma to separate the two items. So Jane should write, "Monday, January 5, 2009."

I hope your Tuesday is going swimmingly!
