Dear Editor:The suffering souls of the nouveau riche in their second-home world were laid bare in the quote from would-be philanthropist Lynda Resnick, when she said in staff writer John Colson’s article on Paepcke Auditorium, “I’ve decided to withdraw the funds and not pay for the renovation,” because she and her husband “wanted a naming opportunity” (“Change of heart on name change,” Aug. 24).Coupled with the tragic flimflam talk from the esteemed Aspen Institute, lessons were learned all around.Tim CooneyAspen
