A script to change layers of delete elements in layout space

Image that you have a file with LOTS of layout pages and there are elements sprinkled all over those pages that you want to modify without taking the time to go to each page to do it. This may not be possible… but I’m wondering if with V6 one can write a script, python etc. that would allow you to right click on the layer that has these objects that are in layout space, “grab” these objects, and move them to another layer, or delete them?Ideally, if this is possible, it would be good to be able to do this whether you’re in layout space or model space.

Thank you.

Oh, mannnnn… what an unbelievably stupid question. I must have been tired when I posted this. Thank you all for not answering it!!!
