What The Hell? Part I

The Government Run Amuck

Today's online university newsletter contained the following:

Writing tip--Due to new federal guidelines, we must now use the term
"regional sites" when referring to the off-campus locations that for
years have been known as WMU's branch campuses. Please use the new
terminology in all future print and electronic communication.

Must? Must? What the hell? What in the world are Federal government doublespeak regulators doing telling the university that they "must" use the term "regional sites" instead of "branch campuses"? Guidelines? I think I know some pirates who have a different view of what guidelines mean. (grin)
