Tobias Wolff's "Hunters in the Snow"
The creation of "frienemy" relationships allow members to take advantage of each other and use each other to justify immoral acts.
"Tub ate several mouthfuls, then started to wipe his lips. Frank took the napkin away from him. 'No wiping,' he said. Tub kept at it. The syrup covered his chin; it dripped to a point like a goatee. 'Weigh in, Tub,' Frank said, pushing another fork across the table."
"Look, I'm sorry. I didn't know you felt that way, honest to God I didn't. You should have said something."
"Absolutely. It was him or you. I would have done the same thing in your shoes, no question."
"Tub, I've been thinking. What you said about me not paying attention, that's true."
"When Tub crossed the last fence into the road the truck started moving. Tub had to run for it... Kenny looked out the rear window and grinned."
"Kenny fired. The bullet went in between the dog's eyes."
"...that farmer? He told Kenny to kill the dog."
