If I have a HABTM relationship between two models (places, pictures),
can I delete the record from the join table without also destroying the


1. << @picture
2. ).destroy

I'd want line #2 (...or something similar unless I'm way off) to destroy
the record in pictures_places only, and not anything from the other two
tables (pictures, places).

It's late. I hope that made sense. I only wanna nuke the relationship
