Shannon, who likes to collect decorative christmas tins. asks...
Should there be a comma after Inc. in the following sentence? Regional Development Inc., has a staff of 1500 people.
Anne answers...
No. Regional Development Inc. is the subject of the verb 'has' and should not be separated from it with a comma.
