Thanks, Loki. I've read the FAQ. I take the gist of your reply to be that, right now at least, there really isn't much if any difference between CD yields and Treasury yields. (By "much difference." I'm talking about a few hundredths of a percentage point.)

The other part of my question had to do with corp. bond yields. I'm seeing no premium at all for corp bonds (other than really speculative stuff) versus Treasuries (or CDs). Isn't that odd?
