Editors Note "All facts considered has three parts full of fascinating facts on history (including natural history), science (including religion and language), and the arts. History: Who were the Olmecs and the Goths? How did New York get its name? What's the life span of a $5 bill? Who were the first and last men killed in the Civil War? Who was the Prince of Cranks, the King of Censors and the Merry Monarch? When is the wolf moon? What's the most arid place on earth, and the flattest? What were those rockets with ared glare and the bombs bursting in air? What's the origin of chewing gum, paper, and golf balls? What does "puttanesca" mean, and the names of other Italian dishes?"--Provided by publisher.
