How to remove just the outermost braces of a list?


hello

I thought this will be easy, but I can't seem to find an easy way to do the 
following.

e={a,{b}}
Print[e]  ------> This will print {a,{b}}

What can I do to make it print   a,{b}  ?

Flatten does not do it.  TableForm came close, but it removes all braces, 
not just the outermost.

Many times I get a list as a result which I want to print, but I do not want 
the outermost braces to be displayed as well. I want to display just the 
content of the list.

thanks,
Nasser
