Tuesday January 16, 2001

US date format: 1/16/2001, UK date format: 16/1/2001

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 16, 2001). 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 January people in US were listening to Independent Women Part I by Destiny's Child. In UK Touch Me by Rui Da Silva featuring Cassandra was in the top 5 hits. Manic, directed by Jordan Melamed, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while The Last Precinct by Patricia Cornwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Taina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Riders: Chronicles of Pern or Atari Anniversary Edition.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2001 or at January 16 across the years.
