Fragments Of A Law Code from Hazor?

Robert Cargill reports on a report from Jack Sasson. Grab a handful of capital letters, get over to Roberts’ official blog and check it out.
Quoting Sasson, here’s the money line, “The text parallels portions of the famous Law Code of Hammurabi, and, to a certain extent even the Biblical ‘tooth for a tooth’.” Without seeing the text, I’d be a little careful with all this. But then, as regular readers of Abnormal Interests know, “parallels” can cover a multitude of sins.
Hmmm. Pictures, text, archeological context please.
Update: I just saw that Seth Sanders at Serving the Word has several abnormal thoughts on this announcement.
