If I remember correctly, t-bills just became interesting in the last few months.

Toro,

"Interesting to whom?" is the question that has to be asked, because each person's situation is different.

For people in high-tax states and whose returns from T-Bills having been beating your named alternatives for a long time, T-Bills have been "interesting" a lot longer than than just "the last few months".

Again, each person's situation will be different, but always includes the need to track changes and to make timely decisions. But that isn't what happens, and most investors haven't even bought their ticket when the train is pulling away from the platform, which is why the financial press and the talking heads have such sway over the investing public, who are typically a day late and a dollar short of doing their own thinking and are always looking for someone else to tell them what to buy, and when, and what is "interesting", and what is not.
