Like little stars.
Another hurdle to the testimony of Monica Goodling, a former senior Department of Justice official and DOJ liaison to the White House, has been cleared. The DOJ’s inspector general today informed Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, that the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Office of the Inspector General, which are conducting their own investigations into the circumstances surrounding the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, will not oppose the Judiciary Committee’s application for a grant of immunity for Goodling.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will appear in front of the same committee on Thursday; he’ll have to be especially careful to mind his P’s and Q’s now that he knows an immune Goodling may be following not long behind.
A committee staffer tells Salon that Goodling’s testimony may come as early as before Memorial Day.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
