Thirty-four die from suicide attack in Syria

At least 34 people have died after twin blasts exploded on the streets of Damascus, Syria on Nov. 28, 2012. Authorities have said that a suicide bomber preformed the attack. Another 83 people have been seriously injured. The two bombs exploded in different cars shortly after 6:40 p.m. local time. The explosion occurred at the main square of the capital city. This tragedy only adds to the turmoil that is occurring in Gaza, Syria, and Israel. Only days after the cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas, citizens have just as much to be worried about as ever.

About the Contributor
Ben Wylde, Chief Opinion Editor
Ben Wylde is a senior at NCHS that plays baseball and basketball and is a member of geography club and I-club. This is Ben’s third year as a journalism student and is likely to be the chief opinion editor this year for the Inkspot. Biggest Pet Peeve The biggest peeve I have is when I have a teacher that is writing on the board with short sleeves who also is not working out their triceps and when he/she writes on the board the droopy unused tissue flaps back and forth. Slogan to Live by The slogan I live by is, "Rock the boat, don't rock the boat, baby. Rock the boat, don't tip the boat over." Guilty Pleasure My guilty pleasure is the Carnitas Nachos dish at Fiesta Ranchera (which is not on the menu) that tingles my taste buds and soothes any discomfort I may have.
