Description of problem:
RHA033 -> Workbook 3 -> Chapter 1 -> Discussion

In the second paragraph after the "User Passwords and the /etc/shadow
file" heading:

"Because the file contains only passwords, its permissions do not
allow people to view its contents."

In addition to the encrypted passwords there is password aging
information.  Maybe pull out "only" and put in "encrypted".
