Just a thought I had earlier today while listening to HP and the Goblet of Fire.
From Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
“Don’t you dare blame your father for what that wretched Skeeter woman wrote!” said Mrs. Weasley, flaring up at once.
“If Dad hadn’t said anything, old Rita would have just said it was disgraceful that nobody from the Ministry had commented,” said Bill,
Guess there’s some folks out there that just never learned the old adage ….
“If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say nothing at all.”
