Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Justin Kirk and Nicaya Wiley. In that special week of May people in US were listening to All For You by Janet. In UK Don't Stop Movin' by S Club 7 was in the top 5 hits. Very Annie Mary, directed by Sara Sugarman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while Comfort Me With Apples by Ruth Reichl was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Blind Date. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dynasty Warriors 3 or Castrol Honda VTR.
