Frank Librio, the fine PIO at Dallas City Hall, just sent word: The city's introducing E-Alerts today, intended to keep locals "connected to City Hall," which I assume isn't some kind of a threat. Says the memo, all you gotta do is go to

Type in your e-mail address, and, voila, you're all set to receive the latest and greatest in releases, notices and myriad other missives concerning council briefings, the Trinity River Corridor Project or picnics at Mayor Tom's house.
