EDIT: nah, writing crap. Of course if the filenames are equally long and contain a date, ls sorts them by filename and thus by date. If you want to have the date separated (i.e. don't want to read it from the filename), use cut like in the above post.
You could also play around with hi-fi tools like find if you don't like it simple.
