A Dozen Uses for Commas, Part 8

This week, as we continue looking at the many uses of commas, we’re focusing on one of the simplest and most common uses: separating the elements of dates, geographical locations, addresses and titles in names. I don't think these need much explanation, so how about a DO and DON'T list instead?

DO:
Phoenix, Arizona
September 1, 2008
1234 Main Street, St. George, UT 84760
Martin Luther King, Jr.

DON'T:
1234 Main Street, Dallas, TX, 75201 (the last comma is unnecessary)
September, 2008

Funny to see St. George in your example. It is where I started in transcription and where my parents still live. :)
