While I wouldn't normally link to a Christian site, there is a good article by Anne Cadwallader at the Christian Science Monitor about the reasons for the quiet marching season that we've had in Northern Ireland this year which was quite interesting. It's heartening to see both sides of the community working together in this way. And, to be honest, it's bloody well about time too!
Edit: I wrote the first sentence above in haste. From the About page at the CSM:
Is the paper a religious periodical? No, it's a real newspaper published by a church — The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Mass., USA. Everything in the Monitor is international and US news and features, except for one religious article that has appeared each day in The Home Forum section since 1908, at the request of the paper's founder
So my apologies for calling the CSM a Christian site before checking my facts.
