DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER -- From "Random House Dictionary of Popular
Proverbs and Sayings" by Gregory Y. Titelman: "Don't shoot the messenger.
Don't blame the person who brings bad news. This idea was expressed by
Sophocles as far back as 442 B.C. and much later by Shakespeare in 'Henry
IV, Part II' (1598) and in 'Antony and Cleopatra' (1606-07) The word kill
may be used as a substitute for 'shoot.'" Related saying: "Don't shoot the
piano-player; he's doing the best he can. Don't hurt innocent people.
Originated in the United States in the Wild West, around 1860. During his
1883 tour of the United States, Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) saw this saying on a
notice in a Leadville, Colorado, saloon. It is sometimes attributed to Mark
Twain, but neither Wilde nor Twain has ever claimed authority."

Är det någon som vet ursprunget och historien bakom "Don`t kill the 
messenger" eller "Döda inte budbäraren"?

Sofokles ska tydligen ha pratat om detta och det nämns i någon av 
Shakespeares pjäser. Men låntagaren vill ha mer information om historien 

Någon som vet?

Vänliga hälsningar
