20 Years Ago on Sept. 15, 1998 -- Save for a Rainy Day (and a New Safe Surfin' link)

September 15, 1998: A pretty generic Personal Finance promo, with a piece of stock art that's probably still in use now. The Starr Report is still in the third spot of the promo block:
Way below the fold, in the America Online corporate links section, we added a new item for Online Safety, touting some Safe Surfin' program that I don't recall. It would have been a website, not an AOL-only service link. It may be related to this video. The timing around all the Starr report publishing is probably just a coincidence.

[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.]
