It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus. The US president was Bill Clinton (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Maria, Maria by Santana. In UK Bound 4 Da Reload (Casualty) by Oxide & Neutrino was in the top 5 hits. Mission: Impossible II, directed by John Woo, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2000 while Eating Well for Optimum Health by Andrew Weil was one of the best selling books.
