reading logs with emacspeak

i've got a question for all you emacspeak users out there.

what do people do when they want to read a log file.
something that has a long date on the left with a message on the right.
for example the files in /var/log

what have people found to be the best approach for this.  

i simply cut out the rectangle containing the dates, but this removes the date information.  it allows me to quickly arrow through the messages, but when i want to know the date asociated with a message it is no good.

any suggestions?

table mode doesn't seem to work that well for files in this format.  sometimes it splits the message into several columns.
