LETTER: ‘Paddock’ controversy is silly

Regarding the article suggesting a name change for the paddock area in the Formula 1 race: I think this is a terrible idea. Yes, the name of that part of the circuit is the surname of the Route 91 shooter. However, until I read that article not once while watching untold practice sessions, qualifying and races had I ever associated the paddock area with the Route 91 shooter. And I doubt many others would, particularly F1 fans.

If we all sit around and think of ways people might be offended by a term nobody would ever get anything done. Changing the name of a building does nothing more than empower a dead mass murderer.
