I have a U.S. border which also has a "lake polygon" (Salt Lake, I think). I want to just delete it. I thought I could use Editor tool, and use "Explode Multi-part", but it does not work (I noticed I was able to remove islands that were outside of the U.S. polygon, but I cannot remove what's INSIDE the U.S. polygon.  Note that this is a SINGLE polygon.

What can I do?
