Preserving a tradition

Dear Editor:Changing the name of the Paepcke Auditorium unnecessarily discards a cherished Aspen tradition. Wouldn’t it be more respectful to all concerned to name the building, which contains more than just the auditorium, the Resnick Building and let Aspenites and visitors still refer to the “Paepcke Auditorium”? The official name could be “The Paepcke Auditorium in the Resnick Building,” a phrase that trips lightly off the tongue.Sy ColemanAspen
