30 Day Wonder is about a reporter-a good one-who’s an average guy with a sense of humor and reasonable views about the rights of his fellow man. Maybe that’s why the Monolithians picked him to head up their public-relations program. After all, they had to reach a lot of average people and even though they were invulnerable, they couldn’t afford to take chances. Because they had a message, and EVERYBODY had to be convinced. So he didn’t have any choice in the matter. That’s where the system went wrong . . . no choice.
