Put Paepcke on eBay?

Dear Editor:I hear the Aspen Institute is going to swap Paepcke for a replacement name, some cash, and a philosopher to be named later.I think they might be selling themselves short. How do they know this is the best deal they can get? Certainly the Resnicks aren’t the only rich guys who would pay big to slap their name on an important Aspen building.How about an auction? It could be one of those fun but meaningful gala events that the institute hosts so well. I bet old Walter’s name is worth more than they think.Michael GassmanBasalt
