An army of Davids, literally
By Tom Smith

Archeologists find evidence of massive assaults by an army of sling-users flinging clay projectiles, circa 3500 BC, near the Syria Iraq border.

A LOYAL reader points out, "still figuratively", which is correct of course. The slingers were not actually Davids, though a few of them might have been so named.
