television programs. I wanted to call attention to this post for two reasons. One, the debate between Chris Sims and Chris Haley on the merits of the pilot for the show Young Justice is not just funny and insightful but also show how two men can disagree and yet be friendly. Second, the show may have little cognitive value but it was fun and yet it still managed to deal with questions like: As a young person, how do you know when it's time to go on your own? As a mentor and/or parent, how do you know when it's time to let go? Also do your origins - say a clone - give you the same right to be free as a person who isn't a clone? (I know not a new question, but given the current advance in genetics we need to have answers quickly.) Is it ethical to clone a person without their consent or knowledge? The show does not really definitively answer these questions but it does raise the conversation. Also to weigh-in on the debate, I think Haley is right, the show was great! My only complaint is that we won't see any new episodes until January!!! IT was fun to see Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Superboy learning how to be a team without their mentors and trying to find their own way....and to see them beat a lot of bad guys.
