Saturday April 28, 2001

US date format: 4/28/2001, UK date format: 28/4/2001

It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 28, 2001). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of April people in US were listening to All For You by Janet. In UK It Wasn't Me by Shaggy featuring Rikrok was in the top 5 hits. The Mummy Returns, directed by Stephen Sommers, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while On the Street Where You Live by Mary Higgins Clark was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dismissed. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Cameron Files: Secret at Loch Ness or Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
