Can I delete a static pointer?
You can call delete on a static pointer and release the memory it points to
if it indeed points to memory that was allocated. If you are intending on
calling delete on a static pointer that is shared amongst multiple objects
I'd be careful...

Yes...

Even if it's static, you need to manage the pointer - new/delete
operations!
