The /USR/BIN/CRON are spawned cron process running commands from
crontabs. They were started because the crontabs told them too.

The interesting question would be: why aren't they completing? Is this
something that happens after startup, and eventually goes away, or a
certain time of day? Or is it a more or less continual state of affairs?

What version of cron are you using? 

Hmmm, what version of syslog are you using? There was a bad version out
for a little while, that would cause processes calling syslog() to hang.
