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

Justin De Fratus remembers Marlon Byrd pulling him aside last April after De Fratus was demoted to the minors. The veteran outfielder told De Fratus to be mad. This was his time to be angry, Byrd told him. "But when you get there tomorrow, it's time to work," Byrd told De Fratus. De Fratus passed along that advice on Thursday night to Jake Diekman after the lefthanded reliever was optioned to triple-A Lehigh Valley. Diekman is one of De Fratus' best friends. He said he has no doubt that Diekman will respond to being sent down.

If you plan to sell your house and your wood floors look worn out, listing agents offer this advice, almost universally: Have them refinished. "Having those gleaming hardwood floors is almost always a plus when presenting a house for sale," said Gary Segal, of Keller Williams Realty in Blue Bell. Floors probably have "the single most powerful impact on the look and feel of a home," said Chris Somers, of Re/Max Access in Northern Liberties.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay sat on a counter in the back of the press box at Bright House Field, the backs of his knees draped across the edge of the formica, his legs dangling below. He wore a T-shirt and a hat and he rested his sun-tanned forearms on his thighs. The national anthem played and the crowd cheered and a slender lefthanded pitcher strode to the mound. All of this occurred with a two-tiered terrace of working media standing, blocking Halladay's view of the windows that looked out onto the field.

Harvey Cedars Mayor Jonathan Oldham calls his town "a poster child" for why he thinks building dunes and replenishing beaches along the New Jersey coast are really good ideas. More than two million cubic yards of sand were pumped onto Harvey Cedars' mile-long beachfront in 2010. And like the rest of Long Beach Island, the town suffered extensive flooding and residential and commercial property damage when Hurricane Sandy roared ashore Oct. 29, 2012, and created a $68 billion disaster up and down the coast.

I've seen it all: Religious, political, social and ethnic persecution, and it's been one of the most rewarding aspects of my job to help a deserving individual establish a new life in this beautiful country. So when I heard that the Democratic National Committee had chosen Philadelphia as the site of the 2016 presidential convention, my first thought was: "Oh, the humanity!"

The Pennsylvania School Boards Association says it differs with some of the recommendations a Chester County grand jury gave to the Coatesville Area School District last week. The association said Tuesday that sweeping votes on meeting agendas are not always bad, antinepotism policies can go too far, and all school board members, not just new ones, should receive in-depth training. The jury's recommendations to fix systemic problems within the district might create other troubles or not go far enough, according to Stuart Knade, the Pennsylvania School Boards Association's lawyer.

They don't have much time to extract the right lessons: The 2016 presidential campaign will begin in earnest any minute now. So, I consulted two Democratic sages, each of whom played a central role in electing the last two Democratic presidents: David Axelrod, who worked for Barack Obama in 2008, and James Carville, who worked for Bill Clinton in 1992.

POPE FRANCIS should bring his "breastplate of righteousness" and his "belt of truth" when he travels next year to "satan's playground," also known as Philadelphia. That's according to the most recognizable man in a long, white robe currently within city limits, Philly Jesus. Philly Jesus, whose real name is Michael Grant, has been dressing as Jesus Christ and hanging out at LOVE Park for the past seven months, posing for pictures with tourists and "spreading seeds" for God, as he likes to put it. Pope Francis should know that being a visible religious figure in the City of Brotherly Love isn't always easy.
