Colombians Angry At Lovin' Criminals

In September, officials at Colombia's embassy in Paris registered their anger over the

title of the Fun Lovin' Criminals' overseas release 100% Colombian in a

letter to the rap-rock band's French label, Chrysalis. The diplomats say they were

offended that the country's name would be linked with the term "criminal," particularly in

light of Colombia's continued battle against the drug trade. "This is an American group

and we didn't understand why the name of Colombia should be in the album," said an

embassy representative who asked not to be named.
