20 Years Ago on Sept. 12, 1998 -- Starr Report Saturday

September 12, 1998: Naturally, we continued with the Starr Report in the top spot, though we resumed the regular text promo lineup in the other spots. Also note that we put a Starr Report house ad in the rotation. It probably wasn't a good idea to use the exact same graphic for the house ad in the ad bloc as the editorial promotion, but then again, I think by this point, everyone assumed everything was an advertisement anyway:

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
