in jQuery, if I have one element inside of another one and assign them both a click event,  When I click on the inner element, it will fire off the click event for both elements because in reality I'm actually clicking on the outer element as well.  Is there a way to make a click event... as they say... greedy?  As in, if I make the inner click event greedy, when I click on it the outer element will not receive a click also?
