    Seriously Now is a new weekly progressive television news program at the Community Media Center of Marin in San Rafael. Our role is to present news that isn't ordinarily available on major channels and is important for people making "real life" decisions in this quickly changing and volatile time. This week, Seriously Now, In Depth magazine looks a little deeper at three important stories. California Assembly Member, Michael Allen sat down with Lawrence Strick to talk about some of the ways large corporations interfere with legislation. Mr Allen discusses the State Park’s issues, the high speed rail project and state employee pension reform efforts. One bill he submitted to legislature to fix unsafe and dirty conditions on playgrounds at fastfood restaurants. Ballot initiatives he discusses with Mr. Strick include 30, the governor’s initiative tax initiative that could protect education from further erosion, 32, what he calls a “cruel hoax” on working-class people by corporations, and 37, the GMO labeling initiative. Many people in Marin County active in a huge movement to mandate labeling foods that contain genetically modified organisms, or GMO’s. Last month, proponents of Proposition 37, the labeling mandate, held a symposium in San Rafael. Author, Jeffrey Smith explains why the manipulation of most of the world’s seed population is so harmful for your health. The Strauss Creamery and the Jensen Ranches in Tomales are featured in a replay of two segments of the award winning Novato Public Access collaborative film, “Hidden Bounty of Marin”. And, finally, a short film, “Tiny Marin County”, showcases a fanciful novel and delightful picture of our beautiful county. 
Seriously Now is an all-volunteer production.
