Thesis First Draft Done

I have completed the first draft of my thesis Short Goliath, which is an examination in the textual discrepency between the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Old Greek (a.k.a. Septuagint) accounts of the story of David and Goliath.  This feels really good, because it has been a long time coming, including a break from working on it for most of last semester.  Now I will start the revision process, which will be fairly involved.  The final draft is due the first week of April.  Once I have the paper in a form I like, I will be posting it here under a Creative Commons license. Here are some gory details:
