Q Is Jack Ford of Court TV the son of former President Gerald Ford?
—Marian Peek, Casper, Wyo.

Court TV's Jack Ford, host of the cable network's series Banfield & Ford: Courtside, is not related to the late president. The confusion may stem from the fact that President Ford's son John Gardner Ford, known as Jack, briefly pursued journalism before switching to a career behind the scenes in politics. But the two men are close in age: Court TV's Ford is 56; the president's son is 55.
