Can anyone help me clip and delete features from a feature class using model builder with interactive input from a user?  I have a line feature class as input and I have set up a feature set that will collect the polygon from a  user in ArcMap.  I want to basically erase these features from the input feature class.  I don't however want to use the erase geoprocessing tool because I don't want to create a new output each time the model is executed.  Any ideas on how to process and write back to the original feature class would be appreciated.
