RE THE letter about the 37-year police officer who isn't covered for a transplant or anti-rejection drugs: I'm a transplant recipient from a police family. My brother donated his kidney to me nine years ago. Medicaid covered both of us, the operation and hospital stay. As for the anti-rejection drugs, I know the police plan will cover the cyclosporine. If he is on Medicare, it is approved. If he was in the military and enlisted in the VA program, the VA will approve a generic.

Pope John Paul II has exhorted the world not to exploit women in the work force. He has called existing legislation "leaving much to be desired" (The Inquirer, Dec. 14). As head of one of the largest religions in the world, he refuses to allow women to become priests, altar girls or even church ushers. His good advice should be implemented in the Catholic Church as an example to the rest of the world. His actions would have more impact than his words. Eleanore Morrow Yardley.

SO, HARRY S. GROSS, reputed "financial adviser," thinks it's a bad idea to replace Social Security for future generations with something that, on average, pays significantly more than 1.2 percent. Glad I haven't asked his advice on my retirement plans. As soon as personal accounts are put in place, I intend to opt OUT of Social Security. To everybody staying with it, I say: Enjoy your meager retirement as long as possible. Bernard F. Coombs Philadelphia

Nine-year-old Peter Roberts tries to do something today that Michael Dukakis could not do a month ago: win a clear victory over Vice President George Bush in a debate. Roberts, a fifth-grader at Warren Snyder Elementary School in Bristol, Bucks County, portrays Democrat Dukakis in a mock debate with a sixth-grader playing Republican Bush. To prepare, Roberts attended the Dukakis town meeting at Pennsbury High School in Fairless Hills yesterday and asked the candidate himself if he had any advice.

IT IS SO true that "we have an entire generation of dysfunctional families. " And it's also true that "Black women head the majority of our households. " Fatimah Ali (op-ed, April 30), you go on to say that too many men "are precisely the type of men that we don't want our daughters to marry. " True, too. It all starts before the child is conceived.

Allen Iverson's advice for top draft pick Ben Simmons is simple: Give Philadelphia everything he has. "Play every game like it's your last and they will love you," Iverson said. "They will love you to death. That's all they want. " Iverson spoke to the media before the 76ers' draft party in Eakins Oval on Thursday afternoon. Twenty years ago, he was the team's first overall pick. He's remembered as one of the franchise's best and most beloved players, but when Iverson began his career, he knew he had a reputation to live up to. "It's not going to be any different from Ben Simmons' view," said Iverson, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in September.

We're living in a world of single-digit returns. That was the main takeaway from endowment and foundation investment managers at an institutional investor roundtable Thursday in Boston, where most of the top colleges and universities decried the stock market's current low level of returns. The market has run up so much since the Great Recession, there seems to be little room to run further. "I would be tickled to get 3 percent" real returns annually - meaning after inflation - in the current market environment, said John Alexander, chief investment officer of the Clemson University Foundation, who oversees the school's endowment.

DEAR ABBY: Mom is 61. She lost her husband (my dad) six months ago. They had been married for 37 years. He used to do almost everything for her. Now, her world has changed because she must do things for herself - like doing the dishes or paying the bills. When we talk, she constantly complains about tasks that have the simplest of solutions. If I offer advice, she gets defensive and says, "Fine! Tell me how I should live my life. " I have reached the conclusion that she doesn't want advice, but she continues to complain and be upset.

Vanguard founder John Bogle has come out in support of the new fiduciary-duty requirement governing retirement plans, calling the U.S. Department of Labor regulations the "first step" in a movement he has been advocating for decades. "Today, we're at the beginning of an arc in finance toward fiduciary duty," Bogle, 87, told a conference Tuesday at the National Constitution Center hosted by the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard, which has long advocated for fiduciary responsibility on Wall Street.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Toomey should listen to voters Sen. Pat Toomey's self-serving attempt to avoid collateral damage from Donald Trump's impending Republican presidential nomination consists of "listen more and talk less" ("Advice to Trump: Seek to unite and listen more," Sunday). How well does Toomey follow his own advice? Two-thirds of Americans want the Senate to conduct confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, according to a March 25 CNN poll - but not Toomey.

Pat Toomey is a Republican U.S. senator from Pennsylvania Donald Trump has dominated the political discussion for the better part of the last year. While I would prefer to focus on my work in the U.S. Senate, and on my own campaign for reelection, there is an unlimited interest in all-things Trump, so I'll offer a few thoughts about the presidential race. At the beginning of the primary process, I endorsed Marco Rubio for president. I felt then, and still do, that Rubio possessed the best combination of policy knowledge, dedication to conservative principles, and an inspiring vision to successfully lead our country in these troubled times.

DEAR ABBY: What do I say to people who give me unsolicited parenting advice, or scold my daughter in public? I would never interfere with another parent or direct a child who isn't in my care. What gives these people the right to barge into someone else's life in such a way? I have been chastised for letting my daughter sit on the floor while waiting in a long line, letting her be more than 4 feet away from me in the aisles, and allowing her to speak loudly. She's 3. I don't hire a sitter for running errands, and I can't leave her in the car. It's hard enough wrangling an energetic kid while trying to shop, do banking, or send mail without being constantly pestered by strangers.
