Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Toby Randall and Harley Graham. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Bootylicious by Destiny's Child. In UK Eternal Flame by Atomic Kitten was in the top 5 hits. Suckers, directed by Roger Nygard, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while Rise To Rebellion by Jeff Shaara was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Manhunt. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Conquest: Frontier Wars or Azurik: Rise of Perathia.
