Magic Valley tries to keep millennials

In an episode of FX's "Louie," the titular character, played by comedian Louis CK, and his daughter Lilly attend a play set in the 1960s. As the dark drama unfolds, Louie is noticeably emotional during the climactic scene. But as he looks over, he sees his daughter glued to her phone and assumes she is texting. Outside the theater, he asks her for the phone and calls her out. "It's gross. It's really gross," he says. Lilly tells her dad she was Googling the play, and he asks how she can appreciate and Google the play at the same time. "Because it's a great play," Lilly says, "and I wanted to know more about it while I was watching it." Millennials/Eric Quitugua, Twin Falls Times News. re here.

Question: Do millennials exasperate or inspire you?
