Thursday July 12, 2001

US date format: 7/12/2001, UK date format: 12/7/2001

It was Thursday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 12, 2001). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to U Remind Me by Usher. In UK Eternity / The Road To Mandalay by Robbie Williams was in the top 5 hits. The Bank, directed by Robert Connolly, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while Founding Brothers by Joseph J. Ellis was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hell in the Pacific. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dark Angel: Vampire Apocalypse or Fatal Frame.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
