I agree completely.
You cant inject a gazillion gallons of oil and chemicals into a body of water and expect it all to magically disappear. Trying to prove to everybody that theres still some there is somewhat pointless, of course its still there. I mean, duh!
My point was there are people fishing, and some of the beaches are, at the very least, somewhat ok to go onto.
But the Gulf is still there, it hasnt blown up. And unless those terrible PTB's are planning their next big move, it appears that this one is calming down just a little.
