Jonestown: 30 Years Later

This month has the dubious distinction of being the thirtieth anniversary of Jonestown, and the dailies are doing their retrospectives. The Chron goes multimedia, with contemporary television accounts, slideshows of the dead lying under the Guyana sun, and the audio recording of Jones exhorting his followers to drink the cyanide Kool-Aid. The Trib has a quieter recollection of some of the victims, more slideshows, and a video Q&A with one of the survivors. Taken together, you get a striking and varied composite impression of the tragedy.
