20 Years Ago on June 15, 1999 -- Using Dirty Harry to Hawk Father's Day Gifts; More Spandex Sports Bra Fitness Women

June 15, 1999: We led with a Father's Day gift promo using a Dirty Harry (actually Sudden Impact) reference (Also aren't we about due for a Dirty Harry reboot? I mean, they tried it with Death Wish...)
For the PM update, we see the return of the spandex sports bra stock art fitness women for a beach-body-themed fitness promo, which also marks the beginning of minimal-effort, ultra-short, just-the-facts bullet links, making the lead promo a micro-promo bundle of links:
[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.]
