A Pair of Perfect Legs

Pianist Liu Wei

Excerpt from Harper’s Weekly
(Harper's Weekly Review), October 19, 2010

… a Russian court seized a woman's piglet--her most valuable possession--to pay off some of her debts. An 8-year-old Florida boy watched the pet turtle he'd just donated to the Gulfarium be eaten by an alligator. "Oh no, alligator," he screamed. "Let it go!" The boy's mother made him look away from the scene, but they could still hear the turtle shell crunching between the gator's teeth. Some dogs, scientists determined, were pessimists. Liu Wei, a 23-year-old armless man who plays the piano with his toes, won the first season of "China's Got Talent." Liu, who was offered a three-month stint performing in Las Vegas, said, "At least I have a pair of perfect legs."                  -- Rafe Bartholomew
