Incoherent reporting. Firestone comes off as a crank but I think I'll wait for a better-written article before forming an opinion.

So now a sports team named The Comets will be deemed racially Offensive!
You'd think this would have been mentioned in Poor Richard's Almanac.
"Comets Blasted Early Americans"
I thought they were finally going to tell us what happened to Virginia Dare and the lost colony.

Bush's fault, right?
"University of South Carolina archaeologist Al Goodyear lectured on his discoveries......"
Another good reason to be a Clemson Tiger fan.
I was gonna post this: Comets Hit Early Americans, Scientists Say, but, a search revealed that you already had.
Now, you should have pinged me. No-one enjoys a good catastrophe as good as me.
Professor Stephen Oppenheimer, in one of his books, suggests that it may have been comet impacts that began the end of the last Ice Age.
Wouldn't there be some tribes with a Kaboom in their legends?
"In recent years, many experts have begun to consider other explanations, such as migration from Europe, and not Asia."

Wait a minute... Firestone and Goodyear?
Thanks for posting it, and thanks again to Blam for the ping. It's unusually coherent and lucid, and while I'd disagree with Firestone's suggestion of the cause (supernova), as said before, I enjoy a good catastrophe.
One speaker named Firestone, and another speaker named Goodyear. Hmmmm......
Comets are already inside the solar system, and they move much faster.
