It was Wednesday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 2, 1987). The US president was Ronald Reagan (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 Scott Moir and Spencer Smith. In that special week of September people in US were listening to La Bamba by Los Lobos. The Princess Bride, directed by Rob Reiner, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while Fine Things by Danielle Steel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Frank's Place. If you liked videogames you were probably playing After Burner or John Elway's Quarterback.
