I noticed in Thomas Merton's Asian Journal
that he tends to be a bit sarcastic about articles in the Thai press, for example, a Thai boxer has his head kicked off, an American woman screams when she sees it, Merton records his reaction in all caps. — "October 19/Calcutta," p25, The Asian Journal of Thomas Merton [ISBN 0-8112-0570-3]
Even gold howls when you beat it.
