We beat them to the punch, but Snopes, the invaluable Internet myth-debunker, has gone where our Insider column had already gone this week in letting the world in on this secret:
Connie Meskimen, a Hot Springs lawyer, was funning when he complained in a letter to the editor of the D-G about a liberal Congress moving up Daylight Saving Time and thus doing all sorts of damage wth that extra hour of daylight. Readers have been busily setting Meskimen straight.
See our Insider, by clicking link at left. Also, see Snopes here, which also dredged up some of Meskimen's earlier humorous letter entries, generally poking fun at D-G columnists. Connie is a he, by the way.
