That's why they “implose by inside” in psychology terms when they face an emotion they can't handle. The total opposite of Italians. When a bus stop (mecanic failure) nobody complain, they go out quietly and push the bus to the garage, when an car accident happens, they don't argue or get angry, they exchange their phone number politely. If you do travel in Finland, you'll find a very clean and quiet country with polite and respectous people.
Are you saying that Sax have a different mind from the rest of his cultural background?
Do you feel that Sax is emotional like an italian or a quebeker?
You have read the Ronald King article Wednesday in La Presse, haven't you?
That's basically exactly what he said in his article. :p
