Product of the Bad Ideas Festival

Dear Editor:As far as the situation with the name change of Paepcke Auditorium goes , I think many of us view it as an Aspen Institute solicitation for future donations; however, in this case it seems to be backfiring.I’m aware they had an Aspen Ideas Festival in July but I didn’t realize they must have had an Aspen Bad Ideas Festival running simultaneously.Don DixonAspen
