It is amusing and ironic that pop singer Adam Levine should be talking about "the decay of Western civilization" (Celebrities, Dec. 4). He is himself an icon of what journalist Carl Bernstein once described as "the idiot culture."

For the first time in our history, the weird, the stupid and the coarse are becoming not just the norm but our cultural ideal.

Thomas F. McDonough, Towson
