Was Lindeman Flea?

Blogger unmasked, court case upended - The Boston Globe:
"It was a Perry Mason moment updated for the Internet age.

As Ivy League-educated pediatrician Robert P. Lindeman sat on the stand in Suffolk Superior Court this month, defending himself in a malpractice suit involving the death of a 12-year-old patient, the opposing counsel startled him with a question.

Was Lindeman Flea?"
What kind of question is that?

Oh I get it. It's not in quotes.

Reading further along it's explained more clearly:
Shortly before the end of his second day on the witness stand, while focusing on Lindeman's views of a pediatric textbook, Mulvey asked him whether he had a medical blog, she recalled. He said he did. Then she asked him if he was Flea. He said he was.
I wonder if I'm the only person who read this, thinking that "Was Lindeman Flea?" was the question.

Grammar Girl? What do you think?
