I love it when a baseball diamond has a section of the outfield sold to 
"The Gap". I used to know what the Cumberland Gap was about, but it has 
left me. There's a place near here called Whiskey Gap, but there's only 
one house left there, and it's the old church now converted into a home. 
It's just 5 miles east of Immigration Gap, which never did have even one 
house, but was the place where the first settlers of Southern Alberta, 
coming from the south, crossed into Canada. A few people still cross 
there, apparently, although there is no legitimate border crossing 
there. Most of the traffic is in the night, I suppose.

People speak of "closing" or "bridging" the gap. Orthodontists, I 
understand, are dedicated to eliminating the gap. The only gap in 
scripture is in Ezekiel: 
Ezekiel 22:30
 30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, 
and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy 
it: but I found none.

I have no idea what that means.

President Benson said that in the true Latter Day Saint home there was 
no such thing as a generation gap.

John P. Grier (whoever that was) said that that "the biggest gap in the 
world is the gap between the justice of a cause and the motives of the 
people pushing it" I suppose he knew what he was talking about.

I could say what I think about the credibility gap, but I don't think 
you would believe me.

Some people try to study the culture gap between indiginous peoples and 
European Americans, but the gap all but precludes any significant 
acculturation or accommodation, according to some experts.

A spark can leap a gap, but probably not an alarming gap or even an 
ominous gap.

Some desperate people turn to a stop-gap solution.

Some apographical writings bridge the intertestamental gap.

Usually one is disturbed by widening gaps and happier about narrowing 
gaps.  But sometimes it's the other way around.

George Orwell wrote that "The great enemy of clear language is 
insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared 
aims, one turns, as it were instinctively, to long words and exhausted 
idioms, like a cuddlefish squirting out ink."

That fills the gap for me.


"I just pretend I'm a princess, and that I could summarily have her 
executed at any time according to my own pleasure.  It gives me great 
comfort!" (The Little Princess)
