All who doubt the word-conspiracy theory I wrote of yesterday, behold: Not 24 hours after I blogged that the word "Columbia" was out to get me by trying to pass itself off as "Colombia," I found this in a story I was editing:
"(The restaurant) Botero, features ... original paintings by the Columbian artist along the walls."
So I thought I'd do a Google search see whether this spelling is spreading its poison across the Web. Yup.
"Bogota, Columbia" -Colombia = 72,800 hits
So, not only do we have a conspiracy on our hands, but there are a lot of lost travelers out there.
