OK, took 12 seconds (cat /var/log/cron is even faster though :). But 
'journalctl -u crond --since today' does not produce the same output as 
'journalctl --since today | grep cron' (which more or less resembles 
what I have in /var/log/cron). Shouldn't -u crond produce the same 
output (more or less) as /var/log/cron?
