[thelist] Random, Not the same Random twice

find the fonction in Cold Fusion that allows you to delete a record,
here's a pseudo code :
<CFSET Story1 = #RandRange(1,Stories.recordCount +1)#>
<CFSET Stories.DeleteRecordByValue(Story1) >
<CFSET Story2 = #RandRange(1,Stories.recordCount +1)#>
<CFSET Stories.DeleteRecordByValue(Story2) >
<CFSET Story3 = #RandRange(1,Stories.recordCount +1)#>

each time you select a random value, you delete it from your array

And it works great, but I can--and do--get duplicates.  I'm searching
for a resource to disallow Story2 and Story3 from getting the same
variable as Story1, but I'm drawing a blank.

Can someone point me in the right direction?
