I know you can use commas, instead of and, to separate two or more coordinate adjectives. Similarly can a noun have multiple appositives separated by a comma instead of and? If the answer is yes, can you give an example in your answer?
Write.com gives this example:
The Great Depression, a time of great strife for many Americans, one of the nation’s toughest non-military challenges, affected many of those who lived through it for the rest of their lives.
Using an 'and' here would strongly suggest that what follows is completely new information rather than largely a paraphrase.
