On this episode of The Gap, Tammy and Althea hit you with a news! roundup! First, the DOJ is suing Texas over an illegal "floating border" in the Rio Grande. It's basically a drowning device. Just when you think Abbott won't go lower, he starts digging. Then, on to the local -- the Portland Ombudsman's Office finds that 1-800-BOARDUP overcharged businesses by quite a bit. But was it knowingly or unknowingly? The program director leaves Portland Street Response, but there are 10k signatures to save the program. And Willamette Week reports on the "turf war" between Portland City Commissioners Carmen Rubio and Mingus Mapps over getting to be the one to change the broken permitting system. Mapps says there are "thousands and thousands of micro-irrationalities" in the city code governing the permits, hence the title of the show. 

Then in the second half, we open up the phone lines to discuss the Barbie movie, and aliens being real. We also compiled a lovely list of free events happening over the weekend at the request of a listener. Enjoy!
