Last night, the PBS special, "A Surprise in Texas" premiered last evening on a number of PBS stations. It is the overview of the 2009 Van Cliburn Piano competition during which there was a tie for the gold medal was between 20-year-old Nobuyuki Tsujii and 19-year-old Haochen Zhang. The catch is that Tsujii is blind, has been since birth and plays everything by memory! I just lost it by the end of the program.

Watch for it this weekend on PBS,

Dang, the thread title led me to believe the Texas state legislature had approved equal marriage. ;)

Thanks for the link.

I saw the program last night.
I thought that it was excellent; giving many insights about both the contestants, and the competative process.
