Wayne sold off his interests in Waste Management and Blockbuster Video. His biggest ventures now are AutoNation and lots of South Florida real estate projects.

Not just waste management... waste management in Chicago [finger tapping side of nose].

My grandpa, a Sicilian descent meat packing plant owner in Chicago, used to say that garbage was something "the boys" controlled and that if you didn't play ball, garbage would get delivered.

I asked him about Wayne about 15 years ago. He claimed Wayne was a tool of the boys. It sounded like they made him, Wayne got his hands just dirty enough, and Wayne took advantage of the opportunities to go legit. He also said that Wayne was "forced to sell" his interest [finger tapping nose again].

just my 2 cents.

Wayne has a fat wallet. He also bought out John Elway's car dealerships for about 90 million dollars here in Colorado, so John has a nice chunk of change,,,,but it's nothing compared to Huizenga. I was impressed that Wayne wrote a check for one million dollars to help the hurricane survivors...sounds like he has his priorities straight...now just get us to the Superbowl.
