    Question Hola

    When it comes to sentences I tend to get "comma happy", that is I put too many commas in my sentences. The following sentence seems to be in need of a few more commas. Do you agree and where should they go?

    At the Little London Primary School in Westmoreland Jamaica, in a tiny little classroom of about forty kids, I learned one of my first life-long lessons: that justice is in the eye of the beholder.

    I would add only one more -- after Westmoreland.

    In addition, I would add a little punctuation to your question and change one comma.

    It appears that I'm more comma happy than you are.
