20 Years Ago on Nov. 5, 1998 -- Last Chance to Win

November 5, 1998: The lead promo featured the last chance to enter a My News registration sweepstakes (for a whopping $500 in books, presumably from Amazon) in what was probably the most... promotional promo we'd run in the top spot to date.

The other two promos were a bit cheekier, with "the boss isn't looking" and "babies aren't little people" and all that.
[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.]
