New York Times: One Letter, One Hell of Typo

Reading yesterday’s New York Times - in print - this sentence caught my eye:

Wait, why was someone protesting “the Church of Scientology for the Killing of Michael Brown in Fergeson, Mo.” ?

Of course, it’s a typo, but a hell of a typo: that same article on-line now reads:

"For" vs "or" - a single letter makes a big difference. The online version also has a correction statement apologizing for the error; the print version, as of this morning, did not.
