Hi,

See:
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/treasuries-u-10-yield-highest-...

I know very little about bonds in general or treasuries in particular. Always been a stock guy. But when I saw this about treasuries being over 3%, I thought maybe for my Mother?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Notice at the end of the article the guy says "People are not going to set up new positions right now based on this number,"
Why not? 3% guaranteed safe isn't bad, eh?

Also, how does one go about buying these in the easiest manner?

Thanks,
Rick
