Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Phil Gramm Is So Wrong & r & & r & We are not a nation of whiners. We do not complain about having nothing to do. In fact, there's a ton on our agenda. We'll be watching the wetsuits flail for 1.76 miles, for example, in the LONG BRIDGE SWIM on Saturday at 9 am, starting from the north end of guess which bridge in Sandpoint (must register in-person by 7:30 am for $20-$25; www.sandpointonline.com) ...





A Boise State professor will introduce three 20-minute NELL SHIPMAN FILMS from the 1920s (shot at Priest Lake with exotic animals) on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 7 pm at the Coeur d'Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave. ... On Friday, enjoy Taste of India snacks (at 6 pm) and a father-son SITAR CONCERT (from 7-9 pm) for just $10 at Unity Church, 20th Ave. and Bernard St. ... Toss a caber, dance a jig and inspect your clan's plaid at the SPOKANE HIGHLAND GAMES on Saturday from 9 am-5 pm at the Fair & amp; Expo Center, Broadway Ave. and Havana St. (tickets: $3-$8) ... The interactive mixed-media installations of BRADD SKUBINNA will appear throughout August at the Lorinda Knight Gallery, 523 W. Sprague ... More than 1,500 players will receive, bump and kill at the SPIKE & amp; DIG volleyball tournament this weekend at SFCC (389-1792) ... Sunday at 7 am in Medical Lake, 300 fitness fanatics will swim more than a mile, then ride 56 circuitous miles and finish with an out-and-back 13-mile run from Riverfront Park to Boulder Beach in the TROIKA TRIATHLON (www.racecenter.com/troika) ... a BLOCK PARTY supporting the Lower South Hill Neighborhood Watch and National Night Out will share potluck food and the music of Dead Man's Pants on Tuesday, Aug. 5, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Huckleberry's parking lot at 10th Avenue and Monroe ... Celebrate the OLMSTED BROTHERS' TRIANGLE PARKS with a potluck (and bouncing gym!) on Garfield at 28th Avenue on Tuesday, Aug. 5, from 6-9 pm -- and prepare some civics questions, because both Mary Verner and Anne Kirkpatrick will be there ... And we almost, like, totally spaced HEMPFEST, which is all weekend at High Bridge Park and which will get around to the decriminalization stuff right after we stop staring at this daisy. Have you ever noticed how beautiful a daisy is? So stop being a whiner, man. You just can't say there's nothin' to do around here. That is so wrong.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
