US date format: 10/14/1998, UK date format: 14/10/1998

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 14, 1998). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of October people in US were listening to One Week by Barenaked Ladies. In UK Rollercoaster by B*Witched was in the top 5 hits. American History X, directed by Tony Kaye, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Grafters. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Armed Police Batrider or Half-Life series.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
