Which begs the question, does it being classified still matter if has been
openly published?  And can you get in trouble for distributing it further?

"The Progressive" didn't think so.  While the DOE successfully got an

it- why whe're telling it", the information was printed elsewhere later in
the year, so The Progressive went to press with the article in their
November 1979 edition.
