Removing parts of the pie

We want to make it possible to click on a section of the pie to remove it. First, let's add IDs to our data, to make the removal easier. Adjust the var dataset code at the top of app.js:

var dataset = [
    { id: 1, label: 'Bob', count: 10 }, //add id property

    { id: 3, label: 'Matt', count: 30 }, //add id property

var path ='g').selectAll('path')
    .data(pie(dataset), function(datum){ //attach to each element
