TMT: I added this for the scene in which John Sartoris sends money to the widow of a man whom he killed in The Unvanquished (221), so I don't know whether it will be applicable anywhere else; but nothing else on the list seemed to fit.

The specific example is Boon "scheming" to take out the car, but there are other instances of characters ratiocinating or plotting to do so. JB
