Darla and Todd Rooks

And they want to tell me to eat the seafood? Why don't they eat the seafood? I'll go catch them and I'll throw BP a big old boil....I'm not eating it.

Darla and Todd Rooks talk about the devastating impact of the BP oil disaster on their fishing community.

Recorded in Buras, LA on October 20, 2010.
