Macy's 83rd annual Thanksgiving Day Parade Where: : 77th Street and Central Park West, New York When: : Thursday, beginning at 9 a.m., but many spectators arrive earlier.

Discussing the behavior of someone as self-destructive as pro golfer John Daly is dicey business. Too snarky and it comes off as cruel. Too preachy and it comes off as too righteous. I'm not sure we'll sound just the right tone here, but Daly's recent weekend is a pretty instructive primer on the guy. Daly started off at a PGA Tour stop in Palm Harbor, Fla., that's in the greater Tampa-St.Pete-Clearwater area. (The tournament is called the PODS Championship, and, boy, I can really get on a riff about these stupid corporate names for golf tournaments - I mean, PODS are portable storage bins where you stuff junk that you should probably throw out, right?

People often ask me: "Dave, what's the biggest advantage of working at home, other than that you don't have to get dressed until 4:30 p.m., when the pizza-delivery person arrives with breakfast?"I would say that the biggest advantage for me, as a writer, is that, instead of writing, I can spend an enormous amount of time watching daytime television. For example, I routinely watch reruns of "Wonder Woman." Why? Because "Wonder Woman" has an aesthetic quality that you are not going to find on so-called "prime-time television," or even in the so-called "Louvre Museum," and that quality is: very bad special effects, especially when Diana changes into Wonder Woman by spinning in a circle.

MARTIN NODELL, 91 Illustrator Martin Nodell, an illustrator who helped invent two iconic characters - the comic book superhero Green Lantern and baker's hero the Pillsbury Doughboy - died Saturday at a hospice near Waukesha, Wis. He was one of the few surviving artists from the Golden Age of comic books. It was a subway ride in Manhattan that inspired Green Lantern. En route to his Brooklyn home in 1940, Mr. Nodell noticed a trainman waving a lantern along the darkened tracks. He coupled the imagery with a magic ring - akin to Wagner's Ring Cycle, which also inspired The Lord of the Rings - and the hero was born.

In what could be the weirdest election since California's recall race, a hyperactive bunny, a steroid-pumped clean freak, a giggling blob of dough and 23 other product mascots are campaigning to become America's favorite advertising icon. The battle of the mascots began earlier this month in New York City. After posing for TV news crews and listening to former Mayor Ed Koch give pointers on how to kiss babies and shake hands, a herd of mascots - including Tony the Tiger, Charlie the Tuna, Kool-Aid Man and the Pillsbury Doughboy - invaded the streets to hustle votes.

"Who wants to be a millionaire"? Apparently Fox 45 reporter Keith Daniels does. The local newsman appeared on the program today, competing for the grand prize of $1 million. Even more surreal for Baltimore viewers, his appearance -- taped in October -- was part of By the Decade Week. Today's decade was the 70s, which resulted in Daniels and host Cedric the Entertainer dressing in leisure suits and bushy wigs. “Yes, it was me,” tweeted Daniels (@KeithDFox45), with a picture capturing the insanity.

EXTRAS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON -- HBO Video -- $29.98 Before decrying the sad state of TV comedy, check out the first six episodes of the HBO series, Extras, from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, creators of the original BBC version of The Office. From poignancy and pathos, to slapstick and sex-romp farce, Extras offers an emotional range unmatched since the days of M*A*S*H (1972-'83 CBS). Gervais (pronounced Jer-vase), who starred as narcissistic office manager David Brent in the original version of The Office, here plays Andy Millman, an embittered 40-year-old movie extra endlessly scheming for a speaking part.
