The generation born 1981-1996 is accused of many things, but their dislike of credit cards is blown out of proportion. A Google search for "why millennials don't like credit cards" returns nearly 5 million results. But is it fair to say they don't like something they couldn't get?

Philadelphia-area millennials are buzzing about beekeeping
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Every few days, Sam Torres heads to Glen Foerd in Northeast Philadelphia to check his beehives. He gets there about 8 a.m. because bees get up with the sun, and goes through the hives carefully to make sure his "girls" — beehives are a bona fide matriarchy at 85 to 90 percent female — are doing just fine. Smoker in hand, Torres looks at how many cells the bees have capped with wax, meaning that they've filled them with honey, and observes the larvae that will eventually grow into worker bees that clean and forage for the hive.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Jim Toole says young people are killing the English language.
He has a list of banned phrases on the wall of the used bookstore where he presides on Capitol Hill: "Awesome." ''Like." ''Perfect." ''Totally."
If a customer utters one of them, Toole is quick to scold. "You're causing me to have brain damage," he told one young woman, blowing a raspberry at her after she said "like" one too many times. "Go find a thesaurus."
