Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

A police officer compares a picture to Jill and calls for her arrest. Michael makes him and two other officers who were running toward her to disappear. The wrongness escalates, and soon Michael causes both police vehicles and all the officers to disappear.

1. Do you believe Michael's actions were justified? Why or why not?

2. Do you believe now that Michael has killed so many people he should be put to death? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

Michael's church services are patterned after carnival acts but do include traditional symbolism from several theologies. The whole idea is to entertain and sell the church simultaneously, and the technique works.

1. What might be the similarities between Michael's church and some of the modern churches today?

2. Would you prefer a church that was more entertaining? Why or why not?

3. How do you think the people in America today would react if a church like Michael's became big news?

Essay Topic 3

Legally Ben can do nothing but report the news and write op-ed pieces for the paper. His aggressive attempt to see the Man from Mars results in nothing conclusive and only serves to bring attention to himself from an untrustworthy government.

1. What do you think people can do if a government is not honest? Use examples from the book and/or from real life in the 21st century.

2. Why do you think reporters risk their lives to obtain a story? Use an example from life today to support your position.
