Looks like San Antonians are still processing the fallout from February's catastrophic ice storm — especially as it relates to CPS Energy.

At least, that's what we're inferring from the Current's most read story this week, which looked at the city's continued reliance on the municipal utility's revenues in its budget.

The week's most-read stories also included Gov. Greg Abbott's new crusade against controversial books in school libraries, which in true Texas conservative fashion he's repeatedly called "pornography."

Lots of folks also clicked on a preview of Saturday's Luminaria Contemporary Art Festival and on a story about the jail sentence handed down to a Texas woman who participated in the Jan. 6 attack and said her "white skin" would keep her out of the clink.
