It’s Thursday. Tonight is the debut of Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.” Its first guest is Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Weather: It’s a no-umbrella day. Drier and warmer right through tomorrow.
Alternate-side parking: Suspended today for snow removal. The next scheduled suspension will be on March 6 (Ash Wednesday).
Few jobs guarantee upward mobility. But there is one job that seems like a pretty good springboard: New York City public advocate.
[The race for public advocate: 7 factors that will help decide who wins.]
Of the four people who have held the position since it was created in 1993, two went on to higher office (Letitia James and Bill de Blasio), and one came within a hair of becoming mayor (Mark Green — remember him?).
The fourth, Betsy Gotbaum, didn’t run for higher office but took over a nonprofit organization and was recently called “the godmother of good government.”
The office is vacant, and 17 people are running for it.
There is a special election on Tuesday, and because there is no primary, and no runoff if the top finisher gets less than 40 percent of the vote, it appears that anyone could win. A handful of votes could be decisive.
The election is also nonpartisan.

What are the issues?
One is Amazon. Most candidates acknowledged that they purchased goods from the company, but also said that they opposed its plan to build a headquarters in Long Island City. Only Eric Ulrich, a Republican city councilman from Queens, said he supported the deal.
Another is diversity. The mayor, city comptroller and City Council speaker are all white men. That doesn’t reflect New York’s population.
Some candidates said that the next public advocate could add more diversity to the field of citywide officeholders. Roughly two-thirds of the 17 candidates are people of color, and four are women.
How long will the winner serve?
Only through the end of the year. There’s a primary for the position in June and a general election in November. The winner of that race will serve the remainder of Ms. James’s term, which ends in 2021.

The Times’s Patrick McGeehan reports:
Is it possible that the world’s richest man-in-the-news could waltz into Midtown Manhattan in broad daylight and not make headlines?
Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, above left, pulled off that trick yesterday, appearing at the Yale Club without addressing the topics the news media was buzzing about.
He didn’t talk about his company’s withdrawal from a deal to build a second headquarters in New York. Or his claim that The National Enquirer publisher had tried to blackmail him with copies of intimate pictures.
His audience, after all, was not the media but the Wings Club, a group of aviation industry professionals. And his purpose was to brief them on his space-travel company, Blue Origin.
Attendees said Mr. Bezos mentioned Amazon only in passing and offered nothing about its plan to use drones to deliver packages. He didn’t even go for a laugh by joking about the helipad Amazon had requested in New York.
Shortly after 2 p.m., Mr. Bezos, having fielded no unscripted questions, hustled into an S.U.V.Best of The Times

On display at the Society of Illustrators is the work of Dale Messick, the “grand dame of the funnies.”
She got her start thanks to The New York Daily News. Sort of.
Ms. Messick, above, was born in Indiana but found her way to New York by illustrating greeting cards. While here, she saw a newspaper contest seeking a new cartoonist. Ms. Messick sent in her drawings of a character named Brenda Starr, who was a bandit.
As The Times wrote in 2005, Ms. Messick was talked into making her a reporter by an aide to Joseph Medill Patterson, the founder and publisher of The Daily News.
The Society of Illustrators offered a more nuanced version of the story. Mr. Patterson, it said, “swore he would never publish a woman cartoonist — and went so far as to throw away anything sent in by a woman.” An assistant to Mr. Patterson, Mollie Slott, “pulled Messick’s work out of the trash” and suggested making the character a reporter.
“Brenda Starr, Reporter” debuted in June 1940 and was, at one point, syndicated in 250 newspapers. The comic was made into several movies.
Ms. Starr’s depictions of journalism was, perhaps, well suited for the funny pages. She once handed a story to “a custodian, who somehow gets it into the next day’s paper,” The Times wrote.
But Ms. Starr’s real message was about a hard-charging woman succeeding in a man’s world. At a time when women faced discrimination at almost every turn, Ms. Starr was an inspiring figure.
The exhibition is on display until March 23.

It was 1950. I was 18. So was Rita. We had met in high school. I was attending art school at night at Cooper Union. During the day I was working as an assistant for Maxwell Starr at his private art school on Central Park West in the West 80s.
One of his students, Theresa, worked at the ticket window at Radio City Music Hall. Whenever Rita and I wanted to see a show, Theresa let us in free.
Rita and I planned to get married, and I decided to propose to her at that majestic place. We went to a show and, afterward, we went downstairs to the lounge and found a quiet corner.
I retrieved a ring from my pocket. It was a modest ring. It had belonged to my grandmother, whose family immigrated to America from Poland in the early 1900s. My mother had given it to me for this purpose.
I presented the ring to Rita and asked her to marry me. She was thrilled, especially in that glorious setting. Later, we returned to our families’ apartments, a 15-minute walk apart in Borough Park, Brooklyn.
Rita went to her mother’s bedroom and found her asleep. She woke her up and excitedly announced the proposal, showing her the ring.
“For that you woke me up?” her mother said.
