The Worst of It

As much as 40 percent of America's commercial seafood is harvested from the Gulf of Mexico, and the oil spill is already hurting the industry:  Fishermen and women - people who've had to rebuild their lives and careers after hurricanes - are once again out of work, their boats sitting idle at dock.  

Meanwhile, "plumes" of oil may be drifting through the water.  Marine life is in danger; tourism is threatened as travelers look for other beaches; satellite photos show a swirling slick meandering around the Gulf.  And though some progress has been made in containing the oil, much of it continues to stream out of the faulty well and into the sea. 

With so many things affected by the spill, we'd like to get your opinion on what the worst part of it is - what you think will be impacted the most by this disaster.
