Your straps are showing: A sneak peek at how the city's PR folks keep it together 

Why, it's worth asking, does a democratically elected government need spinmeisters?

It's a question the Current poses in light of this Friday's City of San Antonio Media Open House, where our government will introduce us to the new Public Information Team (aka the people who have to call other people before they call you back and relay a message, upping the chances that something will be lost in translation). Refreshments will be served, so rest assured it's a line item somewhere.

Meanwhile, courtesy of an open-records request regarding archeological finds at the Main Plaza construction site, here's what one PR head is up to when she's not interfacing with those bothersome journalists.
