[Logwatch] Newbie question on logwatch scheduling

I've been receiving logwatch reports for a while now and they've been very 
helpful, including helping me catch a suspected crack attempt. However, 
I've noticed that I seem to be recieving these reports later and later in 
the day. I'd like logwatch to run at midnight system time. I'm fairly 
Linux savvy, and I noticed that there's no cron listing in crontab for 
logwatch. I also looked in the logwatch.conf and didn't seem a 
scheduling parameter. And I surfed through the mailing archives and 
didn't see an answer to my question. How is logwatch scheduled? And how do 
I modify the scheduling?

Many thanks.
