robin, i'm going to guess that's because the female guest here sounds so over-eager and annoying. i think the festival sounds great. but this guest sounds like she's underhandedly accusing people of being intolerant.

Iranians don't like to wait in line... so it's okay to cut up to the front when they're here?

I don't like to wait in line either. But I also don't like to piss people off.

Why are the only two comments here so mean-spirited and sarcastic? They're doing a good thing, and I for one am looking forward to seeing some of the pieces.

Wow, that's so interesting to learn that Iranians "don't like to wait in lines." It's very different from the west where we love to wait in lines. I guess that explains the cultural difference. So next time an Iranian wants to ignore lines in America I will be more understanding. They just don't know better that in America we love waiting in line.

"Iranians don't like to wait in line" - Americans do?
