I think that currently this is just impossible. Tax-free bonds are fine, but some cities have recently gone bankrupt. Others may follow.

true that Munis aren't the dead-on certainty they used to be ..but still pretty safe (i seem to recall someone looking up defaults and not finding many)

and some are insured
