'I have a dream'

The Davison Files

In 1963, a man slight in stature but grand in spirit shared his dream for America. His message was broadcast in black and white, a fantastic irony of the times.

Many recoiled. Ignorance was their common thread.

Ignorance is not evil; it’s an illness that’s curable with proper care.

In January of 2007, inside the Marriott Times Square in New York, I detected a similar illness plaguing our real estate community. It was the context of the conference itself — a watering hole for those thirsty for diverse ideas that shone an equally fantastic light of irony of our times.
