Hi all,I am looking for thoughts on the general idea of investing in bonds through funds (specifically index funds). I have read a lot about the problems of bond funds in a rising interest rate environment since they never actually mature. And it seems likebond rates have to rise eventually.But if you don't use bond funds for the fixed income portion of a portfolio, what do you do? The only other real option I have is to buy CDs (or something similar) in a taxable account. But this creates a tax issue that the bond funds do not have since they would be held in tax deferred accounts.So...what do people here think? All thoughts are appreciated.Acme
