Hey Michael, I can’t believe you spent the entire first half of your letter (Soapbox Diaries or Slander?) bragging about how you looked up “slander,” but still got the definition wrong. Unreal.
Slander is the oral communication of injurious statements and libel is the written version. The key word in that is ORAL. Oral, oral, oral.
So unless Mr. Ingram flew out to the White House and gave Pres. Bush some good old fashioned oral slander, methinks your hypothesis sucks.
