It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 18, 1997). 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 September people in US were listening to Honey by Mariah Carey. In UK Men In Black by Will Smith was in the top 5 hits. Six Ways to Sunday, directed by Adam Bernstein, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while Cause of Death by Patricia Cornwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Noah's Ark. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Backyard Sports or Ceremony of Innocence.
