Q & A

Q. What was the title of the first book printed in this country?

A. Most people agree that the "Bay Psalm Book" was the first book to be printed in what would become the United States. The first edition was published in 1640 in Cambridge, Mass., which at the time was known as the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The book's title calls it "The Whole Booke of Psalmes Faithfully translated into English Metre."Q. Can an orca whale have twins?

A. There are no reports of an orca, or killer whale, having twins. Feeding, protecting and caring for more than one youngster at a time would be very difficult.
