20 Years Ago on June 30, 1999 -- "South Park," Alan Greenspan, "Aliens versus Predator" Game

June 30, 1999: We closed out June with what looks like a publishing glitch, since we had the same South Park PM lineup from yesterday (also note the Alanis Video Exclusive item and an Austin Powers Movie Auction in Shortcuts):
We did a mid-morning update with... more South Park:
Then, we switched to the lovely Fed Chair Alan Greenspan for a Fed interest rate hike:
Then, we finally closed out with summer video games and a demo for the Aliens versus Predator game (which was apparently miles better than the similarly named movie franchise that would start a few years later):
[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.]
