Typo in stone

Sometimes I hang out at Rick Kogan's show and was there yesterday to witness the last time that he will start his show at 6:30 am (now it's going to start at 7:00 am).

The studio is in the Tribune Tower, and it has a fancy lobby with expensive stone that has some profound quotes chiseled into it. Well, they made a mistake in that stone, and it looks funny, not fancy.

If you ever go there, walk inside and turn around to face the doors, and read the sentence above. The corrected "typo" is in this sentence: "And the danger of its protection by unfaithful OFFICIALS and of the impairment of the fundamental security of life and property by criminal alliances and official neglect."

It's in the word that I capitalized: officials. Originally, they forgot the "s" at the end of that word, and they added it later. You can tell because the spacing is off and it looks all unbalanced. It messes up the whole aesthetic of that Important Place. It's hilarious! It's no longer a fancy foyer but a sloppy one! Ha ha!
