Shortly into Clinton’s talk, a power failure knocked out the recording equipment being used to supply the audio feed to the media. Our recording picks up after a few minutes, with Clinton continuing her theme of the role of democracy in the United States. Several of the questions are not audible, and we’ve done what we can to restore the sound.
Over the course of her talk, Clinton responded to students’ questions on the topics including: the role of United Nations, making English the official language, embryonic stem cell research, and whether being a woman has helped or hurt her in her race for the presidency.
Read a full report on her appearance at the Hook.
If you’re planning on voting in the Democratic primary, we have audio from the two other Democrat. Senator Barack Obama spoke on October 29, 2007, and Representative Dennis Kucinich spoke on December 10. Clinton’s first appearance in Charlottesville from last September is also available.
CPN correspondent Deepak Singh recently got back from a trip to Lucknow, and is still settling in to his life back here in Charlottesville. Late last month we brought you his first essay which described his first few moments back in the country. This week, Deepak tells the story of what it was like being back in India, a place that has changed rapidly since he left two years ago for Charlottesville.

The end of summer is here, which means a new crop of programs here on CPN. We’re returning to an old theme this week with a new piece from Deepak Singh, our reporter for the South Asian community here in Central Virginia. Deepak spent this summer back in Lucknow, the first time he’s been back to India in two years. Here’s the first of two essays from Deepak about returning home, only to find that he was beginning to miss Charlottesville. Follow Deepak Singh on Facebook and Twitter.
In the second in our series of reports on the South Asian Community in Central Virginia, Deepak Singh takes us to a recent Kathakali night sponsored by the UVa chapter of the Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth. Kathakali has been a story-telling fixture in South India for over 500 years.
