The Sipe Springs situation wasn’t important because it wasn’t unique. They’d had their chance at unique in Arnette—well, maybe—and flubbed it. What was important was that the “situation” was finally going to see print on something besides yellow military flimsy; was, anyway, unless Starkey took steps.
Source: The Stand by Stephen King
Context: The situation is in reference to the superflu that is spreading out of control. The superflu leaked from Biological Warefare installation when an infected guard escaped the base before it was locked down.

I guess the military uses yellow flimsy sheets for their internal communication. Does flimsy refer to plastic transparent sheet or think paper sheet?

Thank you.

    Thank you. In the newspaper business, is flimsy used for internal sampling and usage or for public consumption? Are the sheets of the newspaper that I purchase called flimsy?
