Doughnut Diplomacy

Doughnut Diplomacy

When I began practicing law, I knew a very successful local insurance agent.

One day we got talking, and I asked him how he got started. He told me right after he got his insurance license and set up his business, he didn’t have any clients and was new to town. He wandered in the Davison Home Bakery. Now the Davison Home Bakery is somewhat a local landmark around here. It is on the same block as my law office, and they are an old-fashioned bakery that still uses the same recipes they have for 3 generations.

In fact, the white house to the right of the bakery in the picture displayed above is where political provocateur Michael Moore grew up (and still owns). It is said that the doughnuts from Home Bakery are what gave Michael his portly appearance beginning at a very young age.
