Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Kay Panabaker and Paul George (basketball). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor. In UK Killer by Adamski was in the top 5 hits. Far Out Man, directed by Tommy Chong, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Masquerade by Janet Dailey was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Jeeves and Wooster. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Air Duel or Spider-Man & Captain America in Dr. Doom's Revenge.
