If you want to be picky about it, no, Goobered isn't missing a comma. There are two correct methods: one where you place a comma before the 'and' and one where you don't. Either way is grammatically correct.
eg I like cats, dogs, and birds
I like rabbits, monkeys and rats.

In the legal profession, the comma before the word "and" generally is not used. It took me a while to get used to it, but it seems normal to me now.

I don't like rats.
Anyway, I don't know where that "no comma before and" in the legal profession comes from> When I re-wrote the aviation provisions in title 49, U.S. Code, together with the Law Revision Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives, we put commas before "and". Check it out.

Years ago, you skipped 2 spaces after a period, today it's a no-no. There is a lot of stuff like that.
