    Kansas City Life Insurance Co.


    Thanks for the explanation. I think I understand your position and agree with it except that if the bonds purchased by an insurance company are purchased at a discount, they do not have to go back to what they were purchased for. I, personally, very rarely buy bonds but the one time that I did, back in the 80's they were selling at BIG discounts from par and I had good capital gains as well as high coupon income from them. That would be very difficult to do today.
