I bought in Sept 08, an Alabama Jefferson County Muni Bond with a 5% coupon bought less than par, maturing Jan 1 2009. Couldn't find any good CDs for 5%. Only about 6 weeks to maturity on bond. See a problem here? I dont care that it is tax free. its the interest$ and $cost+ short maturity no brainer??
