Famous people born on this day include Madeline Mikac and Karen Polinesia. In that special week of August people in US were listening to End Of The Road by Boyz II Men. In UK Rhythm Is A Dancer by Snap! was in the top 5 hits. The Last of the Mohicans, directed by Michael Mann, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1992 while Who Will Tell The People by William Greider was one of the best selling books.
