Six month anniversary of the BP oil disaster, Press-Register (by Mobile Baykeeper), October 20, 2010:
Volunteers continue to find oil - small, medium or large bits are still being found out there.
There are days when you can smell it on the beach or even in downtown Mobile (some 30 miles north of the Gulf)...
We continue to hear stories about people going to the beach or, for those less risk averse, swimming in the Gulf still seeing and feeling oil in the sand or water.
So to those of you who ask if things have settled down now that the oil is gone, please forgive me when my response is so passionate.
