Many thanks to Jim Davila for welcoming Targuman to the blogosphere! Jim is biblioblog of the month at Biblioblogs.com. Be sure to read the interview for secret knowledge about Jim. I am proud to say I already knew this tidbit of information from a mutual friend here in New Orleans. Now another nugget of knowledge about Dr. Davila: he was my predecessor at Tulane (albeit with a number of years between us) and is still remembered very fondly in the halls of the Classics department.
