FIRST, full disclosure: I have no personal interest in, or existential need for, parading.
Although I have been 41 years in the US, I've never marched in St Patrick's Day parades. That being confessed, here is my suggestion: stop the stupid marching in Northern Ireland.
Does it really need to waste the time of the excellent Richard Haass? Stop being stupid.
