I couldn't find a "cron log" per se, but figured out stuff from cron
is logged in syslog.

I also piped output from my script to a log, but it didn't reveal
anything until cron started firing it off.
Now it's working.

I have not determined what the initial problem was.
I think restarting cron, perhaps, is what solved the issue, however.

all tony, all the time!
