i had a system of selection with my students.
i would take their `donut`, heavy out of round pot
and show it to them.
`would you like to put your full name on the bottom of this 
and make sure people two hundred years from now will get to 
look at it`.  `but, it is my first pot!`...`so, want your 
first grade math papers saved for posterity?`

i then added.  `when you get a decent, well made, lite 
weight pot made, you will run to me with it smiling and 
excited.  that is the pot we save.

it happened all the time, just like that.
save what you are proud of, get rid of your errors.

i bet the minnesota vikings will want the film of their game 
yesterday burned.  as it should be.
i have bought back paintings done in 1965.  burned them.
