NY Times off by Trillion Trillion

The Times Was Told There Would Be No Math | Power Line:

One might think that before you type in a "Trillion Trillion" and then your editor maybe even proofreads your article (hopefully after MORE than "a few", because one would WANT an excuse!), you MIGHT pause at such a number! Compared to 561, we are talking BIG error!

But if you did, you would not be the "paper of record", the brilliant "Gray Lady"!

An article on March 20 about wave piloting in the Marshall Islands misstated the number of possible paths that could be navigated without instruments among the 34 islands and atolls of the Marshall Islands. It is 561, not a trillion trillion.
