You would think Obi-Wan had learned his lesson about taking on an apprentice who is too old to begin training. So why on TATOOINE (not earth) would Obi-Wan dream of taking up Luke remembering what happened with Anakin!? And this time, HE is the one Pressing YODA, of all people, whereas Yoda (After the councils decision in EP1) defends the council's decision so Stalwartly in EP2. (Is stalwartly a word? probably not. anyway...) Okay, I KNOW he's the Son of the Chosen one. (Not that it helped the Chosen one). I KNOW He's already become old without being arrogant (but Anakin was so pure at 9) I KNOW Obi-Wan wants to Atone for his mistake, and possibly sees his chance in Luke. But WHY is he not even CAUTIOUS about it? Anyone?
