FROM THIS EPISODE

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as "E-3," has invaded downtown LA once again, showcasing new games on competing platforms.  The public is not invited, but we'll hear how first-person combat may be challenged by games without violence and how Virtual-Reality goggles may finally have come of age. Also, a federal court ruling that could upend the culture of Hollywood: interns who've been working for free will now have to be paid.

On our rebroadcast of To the Point, the US Senate made history of a kind yesterday by agreeing to a full debate on immigration reform.  That hasn't happened in decades, despite a consensus that the current system is an ongoing disaster. The amendment process is already under way.  We hear about today's action and the obstacle course that lies ahead.
