DAVID R. Gillespie, what were you thinking? Why, oh why, did you file a complaint in 1998 with the New Jersey Division of Civil Rights claiming a bar's "Ladies Night" promotion - free admission and discounted drinks for women - discriminated against men? Did you get rejected at the Coastline Bar, Dave? Did some awful woman hurt your feelings so much that you lashed out at having to pay a $5 cover charge and full price for drinks? The civil rights division agreed with Gillespie, and deemed "Ladies Night" unlawful.

"CELEBRITY CIRCUIT," a non-news division of CBS, reports that Adam Lambert and his Finnish "Big Brother" boyfriend Sauli Koskinen have made up after causing a gay bar brawl (that's a phrase you don't hear too often) in Helsinki. Both were detained by Finnish police early yesterday. There is no truth to the rumor that the fight started when Sauli mocked Adam's runner-up finish on "American Idol" when he won "Big Brother. " Adam tweeted the real reason for the incident: "Jetlag+Vodka=blackout," he wrote.

The mismatch was apparent to the judge and just about everyone else in the courtroom yesterday as Brian K. Jones pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and other charges stemming from a Dec. 13 attack on Robert Zokovitch. Jones, 23, of Morrisville, at 6-foot-5 and 245 pounds, stood head and shoulders above everyone else - even coming eye-to-eye with Bucks County Court Judge John Rufe, who usually seems to tower over defendants during hearings from the courtroom's elevated dais. Jones, a construction laborer, is the picture of health, with a solid physique, neatly trimmed beard, and long, light-brown ponytail.

JOHN "BIG RED" Huttick lost his left eye in a bar fight in Burholme, then endured a mistrial when his fake eye popped out on the witness stand during his attacker's trial last month. On Wednesday, Huttick dealt with more bad news when a Philadelphia jury found Matthew Brunelli not guilty of aggravated assault in the August 2011 fight in the parking lot of the New Princeton Tavern on Rising Sun Avenue. The verdict came after a five-day trial during which the prosecution alleged that Brunelli, 23, stabbed Huttick, 48, in the eye, and the defense alleged that Brunelli punched Huttick in self-defense after being attacked by him and two other men. The fight erupted after Brunelli and his girlfriend were followed out of the bar by two of Huttick's friends, including off-duty Philadelphia police officer Brian Clerkin, said defense attorney Eileen Hurley.

Jurors gasped as a weeping John "Big Red" Huttick caught his fake peeper. Defense attorney Eileen Hurley demanded a mistrial, which Common Pleas Judge Robert P. Coleman granted. "It was shocking and unexpected. He caught it in his hand and sort of held it there," Hurley said. The mistrial was needed because, she said, "something as disruptive as that is a bell that could not be unrung.

NEW YORK - Some travel to the annual Pennsylvania Society event to test the waters for political campaigns, and some to seal deals or buttonhole lawmakers. Gov. Corbett came this year - midway through his first term - to assert himself as the state's de facto leader and position himself for a second term in 2014. Speaking to several hundred people, mostly business leaders, in the ornate ballroom of the historic Metropolitan Club on the Upper East Side, Corbett said he would soon present long-awaited plans to deal with pension costs, liquor-store privatization, and the state's transportation system.

HE IS, PERHAPS, the most beloved Philadelphia Eagle; maybe the most beloved Philadelphia athlete. Not the best Eagle; that would be Steve Van Buren. Nor the most significant; that would be Reggie White. And not the best Philadelphia athlete, or most significant; not with a pantheon like Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Allen Iverson, Steve Carlton, Mike Schmidt, Bobby Clarke. But Brian Dawkins is beloved. Universally, beloved. His number will be retired Sunday night against the Giants, and the Eagles had better have catastrophe insurance on the Linc, because the crowd might just shake apart the stadium.

Former Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett, who had been trying to revive his career with the Pirates, is expected to miss two to three months while recovering from surgery for a facial fracture. The Pirates, who were trying to perk up their fortunes by acquiring Burnett, 35, in a three-player trade last month, are also in a pickle. They had intended to make him their No. 1 starter, but now have to scramble to find someone for their home opener April 5 against the Phillies. The righthander had surgery Friday in Pittsburgh for a broken orbital bone near his right eye, an injury he sustained when he fouled a ball off his face Wednesday during a bunting drill.
