Was 25 years ago today, just a couple years before I came to The Herald. Reporter Don Bohning and photographer Tim Chapman covered the hell out of the thing.

This weekend The Herald ran a reminiscence by Mohamed Hamaludin, who as a young Guyana newspaperman was one of the first reporters on the scene. Hamal is now a local news editor at The Miami Herald, and had a long career at the Miami Times.
It's a wrenching account. It ends:
"It was not so easy for him (Jones) to flee his personal demons.
Neither is it for many who came in contact with Jonestown."

Today, Tom Mangan points to Jeff Jarvis on Jonestown.
