The KJV's version of Genesis tends to be rather poetical, and hardly the touchstone for conveying clarity to a modern reader. It does have verses beginning with "And". A good catch. However, the initial "And"s are lacking in more contemporary translations intended to express the clear content of the Bible to a modern English reader: e.g. http://net.bible.org/#!bible/Genesis+1:1 I see one spot though.. "And there was light." in that translation. For drama, don't you think?
