It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 19, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Up in the Air, directed by Jason Reitman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Defector by Daniel Silva was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Champions Online or Bleach DS 4th: Flame Bringer.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
