It is clear that Hrabowski is a skilled speaker, one who has had much experience and who has absorbed some of the charm and passion of the great speakers he was exposed to early in his life. However, I found his inability or unwillingness to answer questions from the audience without merely returning to things he had already said frustrating and disappointing. The effect was as if he had no other prepared statements to make, and thus had nothing more to offer.
