Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado. In UK Hips Don't Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean was in the top 5 hits. Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds, directed by Phillip J. Bartell, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Wisdom of Our Fathers by Tim Russert was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Foursome. If you liked videogames you were probably playing College Hoops 2K7 or American Dragon: Jake Long – Attack of the Dark Dragon.
