    I "think" he means Matty Maroun, owner of Central Transport, the Ambassador bridge, and a lot of other things.

    AHA! Thank you for that information kind sir! Here he is!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Moroun

    It says that "A recent Forbes article listed him as the 321st richest American."

    And that his net worth is $2.5 billion (2010)

    Fascinating stuff;

    Moroun is of Lebanese descent.He grew up on Detroit's east side with his three sisters. His father ran two gas stations in Detroit, which Matty helped at before and during his high school education. During his sophomore year of high school (1946), his dad bought Central Cartage Company, which would later become Central Transport

    Based on what I read about him he's a real piece of work. He has the nerve to sue the American and Canadian governments for daring to build a new bridge that will link Detroit and Windsor. Reason? It will compete with that overstressed relic that he owns The Ambasador Bridge and threaten his allready overstuffed pockets. The said goverments should sue him for obstructing international commerce.

    If you don't know who Matty Maroon is you must be living in a bubble. Try a Google on him, as for me I have up close and personal experience.

    Apparently I had been living in a bubble until the name was brought up in this very thread.
