Back in April 2016 I sent an email to the list about the saying in the
subject line. Peter Morris replied with a fun Lewis Carroll citation.
Now, I have written an entry for the website, and Peter is
acknowledged:

Even a Stopped Clock Is Right Twice a Day

Feedback and interesting citations welcome,
Garson
