See update below. From the "you can't make this up" department, comes this letter to the editor that was published in last Monday's Arkansas Democrat Gazette. The author, Connie M. Meskimen, may or may not be this person, a lawyer in Little Rock, Arkansas. Also note the headline, "Daylight exacerbates warning," which perhaps was supposed to read "warming." Link to read the letter (Thanks, Jane McGonigal!)
UPDATE: Whew! BB reader Mike Avent says, "It's a tongue in cheek joke...a quick search of the authors name on the NWAnews.com website reveals a long history of tongue in cheek & snarky letters to the editor." Link and search "Connie Meskimen"
