In an internet world where trolls lurk around every corner, one has loomed above the rest: Pete Souza, Barack Obama's former staff photographer. An unlikely troll for unlikely times. Souza has stood out for the blunt savagery of his Instagram posts, but more than that, for the sheer amount of them. It's seemed that for every Donald Trump action, there is an equal, opposite, and wistfully melancholy reminder of how things used to be.  Since Trump's inauguration in January, the posts have p...

With characteristic swagger, the Beatles warned us ahead of time it was going to be the greatest album ever made.
