Default Ursula!

I love your signature!

Do you know the historical context of it? It's fitting in the US right now, but I'm curious what the meaning was at the time it was said...

Thanks! It's something my father used to say, and apparently it's from Boswell's biography of Johnson, which I haven't read. I don't know its context as it appears in Boswell, but I think it's become one of those isolated "quotable" quotations, like you'd find in a book of quotations. I added it as my signature during the presidential campaign because, like you said, it seemed appropriate.
