According to David Freddoso, the Department of Veterans Affairs hasyanked “Your Life, Your Choices: Planning for Future Medical Decisions,” a guide to writing a living will, from the main portion of its web site. That’s not quite right; a Website for the Puget Sound VA has done this, not the VA itself. But it’s the first buckle in a campaign to turn the document into a cause for scandal.

The book itselfis subtitled“How to Prepare a Living Will.” Fox News Sunday gave a full airing to the strange spin of Jim Towey, a disgruntled former Bush administration employee.
