One of the most widely read young authors of the year is shopping for a book deal. Rebecca Martinson, whose furious email to her sorority sisters at University of Maryland became a national sensation, has teamed with the creators of White Girl Problems to write a novel, the New Republic reports. Martinson has not responded to a request for comment, and we don't know the subject of her novel. But, if Martinson follows her creative writing teacher's advice and writes about what she knows, we can imagine the novel would be about anger, sorority politics, pleasing frat boys, and people who should punch themselves in the face (which, apparently, were most members of her former sorority)

A member of the University of Maryland's Delta Gamma chapter resigned this week after a profanity-laced tirade she wrote to her sisters about their failure to flirt effectively with the brothers of Sigma Nu, with whom they had been paired for Greek Week, became the laughingstock of the Internet. Whether it was the letter itself, or the dramatic reading by actor Michael Shannon on the website funnyordie.com (an Oscar-worthy exercise in keeping a straight face that racked up nearly 3 million views in four days)

I read the sorority sister's tirade after seeing it mentioned on Yahoo ("In defense of UM's most profane (former) sorority sister," April 26). Frankly, I found it disgusting, as virtually all of the bloggers did too. What confounds me is that The Sun's Andrew A. Green defended it. He didn't have the guts to use the word she did regarding the "developmentally disabled" because he knew that the wrath of (hopefully) most readers would come down on him. In his last paragraph regarding the gun background check legislation he appears to be saying that she should have used her profane writing skills against those who voted against the proposals.

It's one thing for a letter that you thought was kind-of private to go viral . A letter where you ask your fellow sorority sisters at the University of Maryland if they are "_____ retarded" and in which you say "I WILL _____ ASSAULT YOU!" because you believe them to be "awkward" and "weird. " But you know you're a true Internet sensation when a Real Hollywood Star jumps into the fray. So, congratulations to the Delta Gamma whose nasty and profanity-laced letter to her sisters exploded on the web recently: Michael Shannon of "Boardwalk Empire" has helped you arrive with a dramatic reading on Funny or Die ( Warning: The video contains explicit language )

News of the email has been spread around sites including Huffington Post , the Atlantic Wire , the Washington City Paper and Cosmopolitan magazine. The national sorority has responded on its Facebook page , saying, " Delta Gamma Executive Offices is aware of the email allegedly written by a member of our Beta Sigma chapter that has gone viral after being posted on gawker.com and deadspin.com.

A 27-year-old Baltimore man, described as the former boyfriend of Linda Trinh's sorority sister, was arrested yesterday and charged with murdering the Johns Hopkins University senior in January -- a crime that shook the elite college's campus and prompted security improvements. City police arrested Donta Maurice Allen about 10:30 a.m. yesterday at a relative's house near Waverly, after he was matched to DNA found at the crime scene, according to police and court records. Allen's lawyer described him as a Perry Hall High School graduate who has worked odd restaurant jobs and enjoyed hanging out around the Johns Hopkins campus, even though he was never a student there.
