The first thing I heard when I started my car this morning was an npr story about a guy named Tamien Bain. He held up a McDonald's when he was fourteen, was tried as an adult, and served a 12 year prison sentence. He said he developed an interest in music during his prison stay, and now at age 29, he's one of 5 finalists in the "Big Mac Chant Off" contest. The winner gets a trip to Los Angeles and their song featured in a national McDonald's ad. You can vote for him here.
