    D- for the sale of 30 year bond, Treasury Dept 1789 debt and any 30 year bonds sold today was very good for the Nations. Bonds sales were re open?

    I just invested in a California Muni bond fund VCAIX, to supplement my other investments. I like the fact that it's both state and fed tax exempt. This fund has very low fees and no load as well. This fund pays over 3 times higher interest than a CD at my bank. Ok, there is some risk, because California is having money problems. A lower credit rating for California means more interest for me. Bond holders are first in line to get paid, if there is a default. Sure there is some risk. I'm willing to let my money ride for a few years.
