Dear Editor:The most delicious detail of the Paepcke/Resnick flap is the Institute’s attempt to educate the public in the distinction between the Paepcke Building, whose name will not change, and the Paepcke Auditorium, whose name-change is proposed.The part of said building open to the public is the auditorium, along with its lobby and subsidiary art gallery. The rest of the building is composed of offices off-limits to the public. When people say, “The event is at Paepcke,” they are talking about the auditorium, not an obscure hall of administrative spaces.Institute officials who persist in this hair-split need to consult an author they may have heard of, named Plato, who had a few trenchant points to make about sophists.Bruce BergerAspen
