The first potential book deal's been announced. Juror B37 -- one of six women on the panel that acquitted Zimmerman Saturday night -- has signed with a book agent.

Completing the "circle of commercialization" and media coverage of the case: it seems the juror was referred to the agent by a producer at one of the morning news shows.
