It was Thursday, under the sign of Scorpio. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Dilemma by Nelly. In UK The Long And Winding Road / Suspicious Minds by Will Young & Gareth Gates was in the top 5 hits. 8 Mile, directed by Curtis Hanson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while Sandy Koufax by Jane Leavy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching 3-South. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dirt Track Racing 2 or Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors.
