It was Saturday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 29, 1998). 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 August people in US were listening to The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica. In UK No Matter What by Boyzone was in the top 5 hits. Following, directed by Christopher Nolan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while The Day Diana Died by Christopher Andersen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hercules. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Circuit Breakers or Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.
