Sodom and . . . Gibeah?
Just noticed that the city of Gibeah, mentioned at the tail end of the book of Judges, seems to be populated by the same sorts of individuals who made Sodom so notable. Except with a less happy ending with a dismembered concubine. I have a Soncino commentary, but all it says is that the similarity with Genesis 19 is "striking". Amazing you never hear about this in debates.
