If Only Somebody Had Told Her....

How could she have known?
A county commissioner in Las Vegas says she regrets the board temporarily renamed a street [Paradise Road] in honor of Guns N' Roses after finding out about the band's suggestive publicity artwork.
This would be the 1978 painting by artist Robert Williams, Appetite for Destruction, first used by Guns 'n' Roses in association with their 1987 album of the same name?
Scow said she'd done her due diligence before the renaming, even listening to the song beforehand. She said she liked the line in the chorus, “Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.”
Perhaps she should have listened to more than one song? How do you get to be an elected official in the Vegas area while remaining that sheltered?

I suppose she can take some solace in the fact that she didn't vote to temporarily rename the Clark County Government Center "Mr. Brownstone".
