comment Dashes vs. Commas vs. parentheses?
Agree it's style not grammar; if I had the rep, I'd vote to reopen. From a style standpoint, all three are grammatically correct; to my editorial eye, separating with em-dashes (not hyphens) is more emphatic, with commas is sort of level tone of voice, and parens is sotto voce, a whispered aside.
