```For example :

In[73]:=
blah = {{beta, {a, b, c}}, {zeta, {x, y, z}}};

In[74]:=
blah2 = {{1, {2, 3, 4}}, {5, {6, 7, 8}}, {9, {10, 11, 12}}};

In[75]:=
Map[{#1[[1]], #1[[2,2]]} & , blah, {1}]

Out[75]=
{{beta, b}, {zeta, y}}

In[76]:=
Map[{#1[[1]], #1[[2,2]]} & , {blah, blah2}, {2}]

Out[76]=
{{{beta, b}, {zeta, y}}, {{1, 3}, {5, 7}, {9, 11}}}

In[77]:=
Flatten[Map[{#1[[1]], #1[[2,2]]} & , {blah, blah2}, {2}], 1]

Out[77]=
{{beta, b}, {zeta, y}, {1, 3}, {5, 7}, {9, 11}}

Dear MathGroup,

What is the fastest/neatest/most efficient way to do the following?:

blah={{beta,{a,b,c}},{zeta,{x,y,z}}}

<<magic here>>

{{beta,b},{zeta,y}}

What if a have a list of blahs and I want a list of those magic
results for each blah?

Is there a way to use part (or take or extract) on blah or the list of blahs?

(heh)
