Grammar Error in single.php

In single.php, at line 28, there needs to be a comma after calling the_time(), unless a different dating format is used.

Properly, when the "Mmmm dd, yyyy" format is used for dates in a sentence, and the year is not otherwise followed immediately by punctuation, it must be followed by a comma. This is because the comma offsets the year, much as would a parenthesis. (See Chicago Manual of Style 6.46.)

Smallest patch I've ever written.

Common sense > stuffy old book IMO.

-1 from me, too. The following "and" superseeds the need to have a comma, in any event.
