Source Notes: Source: Attributed to Jonathan Westover, a fictitious person.This sentence originally appeared in a Virginia Department of Agriculture report for fiscal year 19581959 entitled Plowed Ground. When the authors were pushed by a deadline and unable to find the kind of quotation they wanted, they made one up. In January 1970 the sentence was used on the cover of a Virginia Mental Health Commission report, This Commonwealths Commitment. An effort to learn more about Westover after this report appeared uncovered the origin of the sentence.Richmond Times-Dispatch, January 26, 1970, p. B1.
