    Comma after the verb "be".

    Dear All,

    I wonder why this sentence is correct. Can you help me?

    Think you pay too much for your auto insurance? The sad news is, you probably do.

    Thanks a lot.

    I wouldn't interrupt that sentence by putting a comma there.

    It might be easier if you said why you think it is incorrect.
