Gee, that's a ton of money!

Chinese authorities report that investigators found over a ton [!] of cash and other valuables in the home of a PLA general facing corruption charges. RIA Novosti has the details here.
General Xu Caihou, former vice chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission, last month confessed to having taken huge bribes in exchange for military promotions.
Once the investigation is complete, Xu is expected to be tried by a military court.

  1. Great headline! I wonder what the denominations were (not that I would know denominations of Chinese money). A ton of U.S. quarters is worth $40,000. A ton of U.S. pennies is worth $3,632. But a ton of even $1 bills is worth $908,000.
