Small error: Col*o*mbia, not Col*u*mbia

Hi everyone:

I'm writing to point out a small error in the latest Ubuntu Weekly
Newsletter, Issue 116. There you report about the "Columbian Team
Release Party". Actually, the correct English name for the country is
"Colombia" (just as in Spanish) instead of Columbia, and we natives of
the country are called Colombians, not Columbians. It's a common error
since there are a number of cities and regions in the U.S. called
"Columbia", but the South American country is definitely Colombia.

Thanks for taking this little detail into account, I'm sure all
Colombians reading the Newsletter will appreciate it.
