Best Crux Typo Ever!

Today, in an otherwise boring article on Vatican corruption and financial "reform," the Catholic news site Crux produced this gem:
At the end of 2015 assets at the (Vatican) bank stood at $6.59 million, down slightly from $6.7 billion the year before.
I guess they shouldn't have given Cardinal Marx the use of that Black Card.

Or maybe they should get a sharper accountant.

One wonders whether this Freudian slip didn't have something to do with the fact that Crux was recently acknowledged to be a money pit. It was dumped by the Boston Globe only to be rescued a few days later by the Knights of Columbus.

Let's hope the generous Knights do not also suffer a 99% one-year drop in assets.
