46. Michael Jackson, an African American, whom everyone calls the King of Pop, died recently of a sudden death in the summer of year 2009. His tragic death aroused questions to the secret of his pale skin, curiosity over his moonwalk dance, interest in his successful acquittal of child molestation, and above all, greed. Shortly after his death, major media companies can’t wait to exploit Michael’s remaining commercial value by live-broadcasting his funeral worldwide. The result is astonishing. It is reported that 2.5 billion viewers watched his final hours of glory on TV! What’s more, some people even sold their tickets to his funeral on E-bay. All of his past albums, whether popular or not in the past, are now hastily packed and put on shelves at CD shops for sale or uploaded to websites for paid-downloads. To make matters worse, members of the Jackson family have already wedged a domestic war against one another over the adoption rights of his children. All these acts of greed over the potential business profit illustrate only one painful and saddening truth—Michael Jackson is no longer treated as a person, but as a commodity. I can’t help asking myself, what will I remember a few years from now besides his moonwalk, his pale skin, and his alleged child molestation case? Well, I would like to remember his all-stars, fund-raising song “We Are the World”, which is dedicated to the starving African children. That is the angel-like Michael I would like to remember.

(C) even his old albums were quickly re-promoted to make profits
(D) his lawsuit of child molestation was quickly forgotten
48.【題組】48. What troubled the writer of this passage most?
(A) Michael’s children would fall into the wrong hands.
(B) People would only treat Michael as a means to making money.
(C) Michael had lost his true identity as his skin turned pale.
(D) The number of viewers of Michael’s funeral was below 2.5 billion.
49.【題組】49. What does the word “exploit” mean?
(A) To explore into the unknown world to see more.
(B) To explain something on the need-to-know basis.
(C) To cover up the truth from the public.

51. (CNN, Romania, 07/21/2009) Radu Mazare, the mayor of the town of Constanta, Romania, and his 15-year-old son were accused of supporting Naizism by wearing WWII German army uniform and marching the Nazi 'goose step’ in a recent political rally. Marco Katz, the chairperson of an organization against Nazism, said Mazare had broken Romanian law and encouraged his son to do the same, "educating him to treat the law with contempt." He said the mayor was sending a message "that to wear Nazi uniforms and to march the Nazi steps is legal and 'in vogue' in Romania." He therefore urged the authorities to take action against Mazare’s behavior. Mazare, 41, said he had not noticed the Nazi swastika symbol on the uniform before he wore it, according to the Romanian Times. "I checked it before I put it on but the swastika was very small and I didn't see it," he said. "I really liked the look of the uniform after seeing it in the Tom Cruise film 'Valkyrie.' I bought it from a costume hire shop in Germany." Efraim Zuroff, a top Nazi hunter in Jerusalem, said Mazare should quit and leave his post. He said the uniform Mazare wore was known as the Wehrmacht, which symbolized “the mass murder of European Jewish people and many other innocent victims. By putting on a Wehrmacht, you are expressing total support and nostalgia for an army… of genocide." Romania was a Nazi ally from 1940 to 1944, under the leadership of General Ion Antonescu, who was deposed in 1944. Romania later switched sides in World War II.
【題組】51 What did Radu Mazare MAIINLY do to arouse criticisms?
(A) He participated in the genocide of the Nazi.
(B) He showed support for the Nazi by wearing the Wehrmacht.
(C) He deposed Romanian General Ion Antoescu.
(D) He taught his son to walk the Nazi “goose step.”
52.【題組】52. What does the expression “in vogue” mean?
(A) out of date
(B) in fashion
(C) off from shelf
(D) in store
53.【題組】53. Which description about Efraim Zuroff is FALSE?
(A) He believed that Radu Mazare should resign from the mayor position.
(B) He saw the wearing of the Wehrmacht as an act of supporting the Nazi.
(C) He knew Nazi was responsible for the mass murder during WWII.
(D) He didn’t like the look of the uniform after seeing the film “Valkyrie.”
