"Anybody care to comment on the offer with the backdrop of the crisis going on at Countrywide Financial Corp?"

I put my money there last week. Worse case scenario would be for them to file for bankruptcy, and some government agency taking over and handing your money back to you before the 1-year term date. Chances of that happening are slim to none, in my humble opinion (knock on wood).

As for any FDIC deposit, keep it under $100K (just in case).
