October 21, 1999: We started the day with the usual, Travel bargains and airfare sales:
big news story was the recovery of a Woolly mammoth from Siberia.
Of course, there was another story involving Russia and the former Soviet Union: a Russian ballistic missile attack on Grozny. That one would rate a few My News text headlines, but not more than that.
You can also see a three-item helping.org ad jackpot in the ad block:
[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.]
