Hello guys,

Suppose I have a longish list of items that I want to manually cull.
It seems I should be able to do something like

checkList = ({Checkbox[], #)& /@ list

Then, I could write

instanceOfCheckList = checkList

check away, and hopefully see something like

{{True, item1}, {False, item2}, ...}

which I could manipulate. But all I see is the the list of "checked"
checkboxs and items, not the consequence of checking the boxes. I can
do a FullForm on instanceOfCheckList and extract what I need via list
surgery-- but that is inelegant. I'm sure there is some magic
incantation involving Evaluate or Interpretation or Dynamic. Can you
