Is it okay to delete the comma after '1969' below ?
Joe said, "February 7, 1969[,]is my date of birth."
And can we delete the comma after 'Indiana' and '2015' below?
Lisa reported, "The Gary, Indiana[,] man was arrested on charges of conspiracy."
Johnson said, "The February 1, 2015[,] meeting has been canceled."
After all, '1969', 'Indiana' and '2015' are all essential information and are not parenthetical elements; hence those commas should be removed, right?
