20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Sept. 4, 1998 -- Labor Day Weather Forecast

September 4, 1998: For the Friday before Labor Day, the lead promo spot was for the weekend weather forecasts from My News, while the second promo was about Mark McGwire nearing the single-season MLB home run record (the 1998 "Home Run Derby"). We'll see a lot more about this in the coming days; but next week is going to be even more notable for a report from a certain independent counsel...

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com 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.]
