In the 1920s, change was brewing right here in the USA - by industry barons secretly (or not-so-secretly) in league with Adolf Hitler's Nazi party.
Everybody knows that the plague is coming, everybody knows that it's coming fast... OK, that's just me ripping off Leonard Cohen during the CV-19 outbreak. But here, enjoy me taking the piss out of this homophobic holiday camp while you're holed up at home!
