Yes I can guarentee the last four fields be in that date format.  
Actually I think that solved it.  I'll split on whitespaces into
an array, and remove the first and last four fields, and then join
whatever's left.  That should do it.  I was stuck thinking how to 
parse it left to right.  

Thanks for making look at the problem slightly differently.
