Did Sumerians see an impact?

There has been news around the blogosphere this week about an ancient artifact that might indicate that Sumerians saw an asteroid impact... and that it might explain Sodom and Gemorrah. Pretty much everything about that press release set off my BA detector, and I was going to write about it. But then I saw that my friend and asteroid-namer-after Jeff Medkeff already tackled it with much gusto.

I'll be very curious to see if more about this idea turns up any time soon.
