I think the White House Flickr feed is a cool idea and staff photographer Pete Souza has taken some great shots since it launched. Sometimes, though, his images can be a little self-consciously tricky for no apparent reason, as Ana Marie Cox and Jason Links have hilariously documented over at The Awl. For instance, this rather arty shot symbolizes…that the cleaning staff does an awesome job of polishing the tables?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
