p.s. ochotona you are hereby forevermore "bondtholomew"! Love it.
No, it's "longbondtholomew", or maybe "Longfellow Bondtholomew". I love bonds 10 years and shorter.

You reminded me of something I've wanted to ask. But rather than start it as a tangent here I WILL introduce it as a NEW topic.

eli5 these emails I get from treasurydirect:

"Press Releases: https://www.treasurydirect.gov/instit/a ... 1120_1.pdf
Regulations for the operation are also available on our website at http://www.treasurydirect.gov/instit/st ... /bbreg.htm
This e-mail notifies you that the Bureau of the Fiscal Service just issued press releases concerning a debt buyback of Treasury securities. Clicking on the addresses listed after “Press Releases” should take you to the Bureau of the Fiscal Service's Internet pages of PDF versions of the actual press releases."

Since this isn’t reddit, you might want to e what eli5 means, otherwise you’re going to get two pages of jackson and vinny asking what it means before you get a response.
