20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Dec. 11, 1998 -- "Insurrection" and Impeachment Vote

December 11, 1998: The lead graphic promo features Star Trek: Insurrection and a headline that was full-on sensible chuckle, "Make It So-So?" (Having seen Insurrection in the theater, I stand by what I wrote.)

In the still-new dynamic My News section, we have a headline that says "Committee Nears Impeachment Vote" (see news from the day); I took another screenshot at the end of the day to capture "Panel Approves Impeachment Vote":

[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.]
