"I'm laddering these instead of CD'."

If you've got 20 years till you need the money, that's the way to go. If not, chances are the tax advantages won't outweigh the lower yield. That's not new, but worth remembering. Of course, EE bonds are more liquid, at least after 5 years, though with laddering that doesn't matter as much.
