clams and discard any clam that is not completely closed or doe not close
when dropped into cold water. Open the clams, loosen each one fr its shell,
and reserve its liquid. Discard the top shells. Place clams on the half
shell on a baking sheet. Combine the breadcrumbs, oregano, parsley cheese,
olive oil, 2 tablespoons of the wine, and salt and pepper to taste, and
