With so much dysfunction racking the state of Texas right now, people must be looking to escape with laughs.

How else to explain the Current's most-read story of the week was an interview with standup comedian Andrew Dice Clay, who was booked to play the AT&T Center's newly revamped Terrace Club?

But, apparently not all of our readers were looking for foul-mouthed yucks. Plenty of folks read a story about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (speaking of "yuck") and his effort to shoot down the infrastructure bill at the same time as he worked to tack a highway project benefitting his big donors onto the bill.

See what else you missed — or didn't — as you check out the rest of the Current's most-read stories of the week.
