A question from Josephine:
"My sister and I have a difference of opinion here.
She criticized me for putting a comma between "Hi" and her name, "Lil."
Example: Hi, Lil,
I said that one goes there. She said that it doesn't.
Who is right?"
Josephine is right. Although most people don't use a comma in casual e-mails, you really should put one in:
Good job, Josephine.
Thanks for the question, Josephine.
