"NewsWrap": The European Court of Human Rights rules for same-gender couple second parent adoption rights in a case brought by an Austrian lesbian couple, while Germany's highest court strengthens adoption rights same-gender couples already have there, but Puerto Rico's Supreme Court rules that gay and lesbian couples aren't entitled to adoption rights of any kind; Mexico's highest court affirms a marriage equality Decision justices hinted at in December, while the opponents of California's Proposition 8 argue in their brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court this week that same-gender couples are entitled to civil marriage in every state of the union, not just California, but a federal judge in Australia rules that a national law denying civil marriage to same-gender couples is not bias because it discriminates equally against gay men and lesbian women; and a new "Associated Press" Stylebook entry directs that legally-married gay and lesbian spouses should not generally be referred to in A.P. stories as "husband" or "wife", but revises that guideline after escalating protests from grassroots activists and major LGBT organizations -- but giant online retailer Amazon had already seen the handwriting on the wall [audio from "Husbands", a new TV ad for the Kindle Paperwhite] (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by JOHNNIE TORRES and MICHELLE-MARIE GILKESON)

High school senior Carson Phillips needs to bolster his college application. So the outcast literary journal editor uses extortion to turn the most popular students into contributors. Carson's plan is abruptly zapped in "STRUCK BY LIGHTNING", however, which bears a passing resemblance to the life of its Executive Producer, screenwriter and star CHRIS COLFER -- as our Entertainment Correspondent STEVE PRIDE discovered (with Colfer comments and clips from the film)
