Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Daveigh Chase and Jay McGuiness. In that special week of July people in US were listening to She Ain't Worth It by Glenn Medeiros. In UK Sacrifice / Healing Hands by Elton John was in the top 5 hits. Young Guns II, directed by Geoff Murphy, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Killing Mister Watson by Peter Matthiessen was one of the best selling books.
