The Pianist and the Prisoner

Here's a very interesting story I came across in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about an unlikely meeting between a federal prisoner and one of the pianists in the Cliburn competition.

Check out this nice lead:

"The letter, two paragraphs handwritten neatly on lined paper, was from a fan who was across town but who might as well have been a million miles away. "Dear Alexandre Moutouzkine," it began, "I have been a federal prisoner almost as long as you have been alive."

It's definitely a fascinating story. Read it here.
