John and Jeff,

The reason my father always replies "we won't talk about that" is because people try to sensationalize a story that they can add to.



You need to remember that the whole question of the mob and Mitch was not given birth by Jeff and I.
That has been talked about long before us and people ask and tell me about it, Is it true, not true,
At this point who knows.
I was told Mitch had dealings or was from Youngstown.
"we won't talk about that" Is not Mitch had no ties, It's not yes he did as well.
But it kind of piques peoples interest because it sounds like there's something there I don't want to talk about.
It's ok not to talk about it, but even a blind man can see that people are going to go hummm.

So if someone said Jeff had ties to the mob I would go NO way, not true.

I no way was I trying to say Bill or lee had dealings with the mob.

BUT for Mr Taso to come to America at like 20 years old with $100.00 bucks and own the Kahiki was it at 26?
One would doubt he had one million bucks by that time, but then there was Mitch.
That's odd to me and many others, there's more to that story.

It's good that there is now a book and Tiki Central so the history can come out and be known.
So many places there is no info on, too bad really.

I'm not certain why you want to banter back and forth about a very well respected and generous man that you never knew or met who helped people his entire life including Lee Henry, Bill Sapp and Michael Tsao financially. Dad respected Mitch for his generosity to himself and Lee as well as Michael Tsao.

As you stated about asking people from Youngstown if they are in the mob, my dad would rather tell people "we are not going to talk about that" rather than calling that person a buffoon.

If people would take time to google Mitch Boich, they would find out just how much he was respected for his generosity. Please stop with the innuendos and let him and his name rest in peace.

And let this thread get back to Jeff's book.

Ok Linda will do.
A bit harsh when you think of things I have done for you and Bill plus your daughter
over the years.

John, its been a two way street.I have stated previously that Mitch Boich was not associated with the mob. He helped Michael Tsao purchase the Kahiki because Mitch didn't want to be in the restaurant business, which is mentioned in Jeff's book.

If you feel you have to insert drama or mystery into a Kahiki story, we are suggesting that you have facts to back up your story in order to not slander a person's reputation and integrity.

Got my copy yesterday. Way more here than I expected. I rarely read, so, this may gather dust for a long time, but I will start reading sections for sure.

Glad there si a section of color images too.
