Tammy and Althea return at long last for Season 3 of The Gap! On this episode we discuss a few news items we missed during our two month hiatus, plus some important differences in the media coverage of a recent lawsuit filed by Portlanders with disabilites against the city, saying Portland has violated the ADA by allowing sidewalk camping. See for yourself what a difference context makes! 

Then, we ask our listeners -- is it important to respect the dead? A lot has been made of this idea recently, with the death of the Queen. We discuss when and where the dead should be respected, and if we're having a critical discussion of legacy, is now not the time? 

Thank you to everyone who called! We're so glad to be back.
