As if our names weren't similar enough, ProPublica—the investigative reporting blog—is starting a Nerd blog.

You will recall, in PubliCola's early days, we had a whole stable of nerds: MusicNerd, FilmNerd, TechNerd, BookNerd, FoodNerd, ObamaNerd (!!) and even NerdNerd.

Remember this:



Currently, we have BikeNerd and LawNerd.
