Your Wednesday afternoon lunch break link bait.

No Blue Angels for Fleet Week: Thanks, Obama. Oh wait, this is actaully the sequestration's fault? Ugh, thanks John Boehner. [H/t: SFGate]

Tibetan Protestors Cancel Chinese Flag Raising at Alameda City Hall: It's not quite canceling China raising the Chinese flag over Tibet, but still. [H/t: SFGate]

A Serious Sangria for SF Summer: Want to know our serious sangria recipie? Easy. One packet of Kool Aid powder and one bottle of Thunderbird. Serves one. [H/t: 7x7]

Cassava Bakery + Cafe Launches Wine Bar Program: We'd love to try the Sparrow Buck: shochu, ginger-Szechuan peppercorn syrup, Cocchi Americano, sparkling water, orange bitters. [H/t: Eater SF]

Project Censored: The news that didn't make the news. [H/t: SF Bay Guardian]

Dave Eggers Plagiarized My Book, Memoir Writer Says: Even if true, and the evidence seems pretty thin to us, so what? Are we supposed to get mad if Herman Melville used some fun facts about whales he found in the encyclopedia?
