These two things happened. I'm also certain I was at work that day.

Definitely a dead news day --- but I found a few more:

- "Mamma Mia The Movie!" premieres at Leicester Square, London.
- Olivia Newton John weds John Easterling in Florida.
- US President George Bush signs a US$162 billion war spending bill for Iraq and Afghanistan
- Sony streamed the very first movie over it's proprietary Bravia system - Will Smith's "Hancock".
