Fiesta isn't the only thing on San Antonians' minds right now.

As evidenced by the Current's most-read stories of the week, the Alamo City zeitgeist also seems to be consumed by the slow-mo train wreck that is our current political climate.

Readers clicked on a story about the outrage surrounding a local high schooler's brave graduation-night fashion choice and also on a piece examining Sen. Ted Cruz's latest bizarro Twitter exploits.

Large numbers also read — and reshared — a story about SA artist Rafael Gonzales Jr. delivering a not-so-subtle message to Texas' increasingly authoritarian governor — rendered, of course, in tasteful papel picado style.

Read on to see what other pieces of content folks were able to sneak in while Fiesta pre-gaming. In honor of the citywide party, consider it news on a stick.
