Close vote gives the OK for Garcia guitar in Gallup

It was a close vote, but city officials in Gallup, N.M., have agreed to accept a sculpture depicting "Rosebud," the guitar of the late Jerry Garcia. There had been protests over the 7-foot artwork by citizens who said the Grateful Dead rocker glorified the '60s drug culture. Gallup's City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday to accept the sculpture.
