I am a retiree who will be happy to pay my share toward getting the country free of debt and back in good shape. I, too, am a member of AARP and really enjoy the magazine "Modern Maturity," but I think that the organization goes too far in protecting the rights of older folks. Many of us can spare something to help our country much more easily today than when we were young parents raising families. Ruth Krause, Brookfield, Ill.
