The Tampa School Board has voted to name a new high school in the city of Lutz, Florida after New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. (Insert joke here.)

Actually, that part of the linked article from the St. Petersburg Times is the least strange part. If you keep reading further down, you get to this:

In an unusual encounter, a School Board critic confronted chairwoman Jennifer Faliero during the public comment section of the board meeting.

The question came from Lee Drury De Cesare, who lives in Madeira Beach but has set her sights on the Hillsborough school system in a blog that spares few officials in its criticism.

De Cesare said she wanted to bring up a rumor that surfaced recently on local blogs where teachers post anonymously. Faliero stopped her twice, warning that this forum was for school business, not rumors. De Cesare challenged that this was free speech.

"Did you have an affair in the school environment?" asked De Cesare, who previously made news by asking then-Attorney General Charlie Crist if he is gay.

That's the problem with democracy. It lets people say things. And usually most of us don't have anything worth saying.
