Publishers Weekly's final tally of 2009 books sales has a few surprises. We all know that political efforts from Sarah Palin, Edward Kennedy and Glenn Beck have replaced the slimmer South Beach Diet and self-help books that used to rule the nonfiction list, but who would have guessed that Los Angeles novelist Lisa See would sell as many books as E.L. Doctorow and Margaret Atwood put together? It takes until March for Publishers Weekly to compile its tally because booksellers can ship unsold books back to publishers.

If it's Masters week and John Daly isn't eligible to play, he must be somewhere around Augusta National hawking something that will not improve his reputation. In 2007, Daly set up shop outside the Hooters on Washington Road to sell items from his Lion clothing line. This week, while Daly remains on suspension from the PGA Tour, he is selling "John Daly Merchandise" -- hats, shirts -- from a bus parked next to a Washington Road jewelry store. According to a golf blog on SI.

The venerable short-term parking lot at John Wayne Airport, which has provided 22 years of easy, walking-distance access to the passenger terminal, is closing. Airport officials announced Wednesday that the $15-per-day lot, directly in front of Eddie Martin Terminal, will be unavailable for public parking beginning Friday to make way for a new airport entrance road and space for rental cars. Although the closure will eliminate 800 public parking spaces, airport officials said there will be little or no adverse impact.

John Lackey's short game needs a little work. A mere two pitches into his 2009 season, Lackey was tossed off the mound Saturday, a pair of wayward fastballs resulting in a swift and stunning ejection of the Angels' ace in a 5-3 loss to the Texas Rangers. Some three hours after Lackey's first pitch sailed behind the head of Ian Kinsler and his second pitch hit Kinsler in the ribs, the Angels were still bewildered by what transpired at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

A raw sewage spill into the Russian River continued last week as state water officials tried to stop the contamination by temporarily shutting down city water pumps. "The real concern here is this is pretty much raw waste water," said John Short, a senior engineer with the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. The source of the sewage is a holding pond at a large Salvation Army housing facility north of Healdsburg.

New York's highest court refused Friday to hear an appeal by two anti-abortion activists seeking to block a man from having an abortion performed on his comatose and brain-damaged wife. The abortion opponents immediately filed a motion for a stay with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, but he turned down their request late Friday. Marshall did not comment on his decision, a court spokesman said from Washington.
