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 November people in US were listening to Lose Yourself by Eminem. In UK Dilemma by Nelly featuring Kelly Rowland was in the top 5 hits. The Real Deal, directed by Tom Burruss, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while Sandy Koufax by Jane Leavy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Boomtown. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Deadly Dozen: Pacific Theater or Casino Empire.
