FROM THIS EPISODE

LA's Iranian expats and their families are transfixed by events in their home country, but they're also divided on what they want to see happen and how to achieve their goals. We hear several voices. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the regulatory reforms proposed yesterday are designed to avoid another financial meltdown, but they're already under fire for doing too much -- and for not doing enough. We hear how the debate is shaping up.

Main Topic Iranian Ex-Pats React to the Turmoil in Iran

Another day, another mass protest on the streets of Tehran, this time with many people wearing black to signify mourning for those killed since last Friday's elections. Los Angeles is the home of more Iranians and their descendents than any place other than the mother country, and many are not just interested but deeply involved. We speak to Iranian-Americans with different views of what's going on in their home country.
