One advantage of treasuries over CD's is that the interest earned on treasuries
is not subject to state, local or city taxes. Not very significant now that long
term rates are pretty low. However in the past when the interest earned on long
term treasuries or CD's was 7%, in a lot of states this could have earned you an
additional 1/2 of per cent or more of net income. Now maybe 1/4 of one per cent.
