The Kappa Sigma letter in the news, March 8 - March 14

Here's a roundup of the media attention to the Kappa Sigma letter, since news of it broke in The Daily Trojan (USC's student newspaper) on March 8, 2011. Links below include original reporting, reposts, and various opinions on the letter and its handling by Kappa Sigma (USC chapter and national), USC's Interfraternity Council, and USC at large. Editors' note: The comments on most of these pages are perhaps more interesting than the modicum of information that has been circulating on the affair.
