A visitor took offense at my comment about how I thought Yanni was not all that good of a choice for the first Westerner to play the Taj Mahal, accusing me of slandering Yanni. First, let me set this visitor straight: slander is an oral falsehood. If what I said had been false, it would be libel. But I was expressing my opinion, and if you do not approve of it, well, tough. An opinion is neither libel nor slander. However, sending an email with a false accusation of slander might just qualify as libel. I suggest this person learn to be more cautious about how free she is with her accusations. It might come back and bite her in the ass.
