It has been 29 days since the oil rig disaster in the Gulf — and today, there was undeniable evidence of the spill seeping into the Louisiana wetlands. Officials now believe the slick may also be following a current around the Florida panhandle. Up to 60 tar balls like the one pictured above have been discovered in Key West, Florida, that may be tied to the BP catastrophe. Meanwhile, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar acknowledged to lawmakers several government failures in relation to the spill.  We've already heard many of you sound off on BP's culpability. But tonight, we ask: How much responsibility do you think the government bears for the spill — in the run-up and the response? Tell us what you think. Embedded below is tonight's "World News" report on the topic. ——————– UPDATE: The Coast Guard this morning confirmed through scientific testing that the tar balls found in Key West are not connected to the Deepwater Horizon spill — though officials remain concerned about the possible Florida-bound path of the damage.
