More things you don't see anymore

From Rolling Stone, New Year's Double Issue 1998:

And they say the media never gives us the good news!

From Ecch! Rated MAD, December 1995:

Cuts a nice racial profile!

And finally, also from MAD, October/November 1994:

To the White House, this needs no explanation

Terrorism sucks, just as it always has. But you have to admit, the 1990s were good times compared to these. Too good? Perhaps, but I'd take that again.

Here's another thing definitely made before 9/11, also from Rolling Stone.

I dunno....I bet some folks in the Bush Administration keep a poster-sized copy of "The Up-Side of Terrorism" on their bedroom walls, probably.

Not even the article! Just the words "The Upside of Terrorism" on a mirror.

There was a pre-9/11 joke on "Family Guy" that shows Osama Bin Laden trying to get through airport security. Didn't make it to the DVD.

In Esquire Magazine's 1998 Dubious Achievement Awards, Osama bin Laden is one of the finalists in the "Man of the Year" competition. He is said to be on the list for "Taking away Bill Clinton's time from Hillary, which he values so much." So much for the right's argument that Clinton ignored terrorism.
