His name is common enough that Rob Jones could have played college basketball without people making any connection to a grim chapter in history. But the freshman forward for the San Diego Toreros said he believes stories about his life and what he does on court give his family headlines they can cheer at last. Jones is a grandson of Jim Jones, the leader of the Peoples Temple cult who died after leading more than 900 people to their deaths by mass suicide and murder in Guyana in 1978.

HardRadio's Tracy Barnes makes it visibly apparent that he once again is looking to ride the coattails of the inherent credibility of KNAC (Letters, Jan. 25). There are an abundance of music sites like HardRadio that are automated "jukeboxes" in all formats of music. Breaking away from the sterility of such programming and dated technology, the jocks know that KNAC-FM in its true form was not only music but personality and attitude.
