20 Years Ago on July 22, 1999 -- Farewell to JFK, Jr.

July 22, 1999: For almost a week, the main promo headline had been a variation of "Kennedy Tragedy." This day was no different. (The My News headline says, "Kennedy Ashes To Be Scattered at Sea.")
For the PM update, we updated the headline to "Farewell JFK Jr."
[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.]
