The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat), 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 Shane Victorino and Sido (rapper). In that special week of November people in US were listening to Lady by Kenny Rogers.

Doctorow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Number 96. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragster or Horse Racing.
