It was Friday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Foolish by Ashanti. In UK One Step Closer by S Club Juniors was in the top 5 hits. The Bourne Identity, directed by Doug Liman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while American Son by Richard Blow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Boston 24/7. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell or Star Wars: The New Droid Army.
