Poor headline hisses like a snake!

Here is a headline that appeared not long ago in The Washington Post:



Whoops! It is not "legal" to put an S on a plural subject and then put another S on a singular verb.  One or the other will do.  In this headline, PANELISTS (plural) is the subject.  Therefore, the verb should be OK (plural), not OKs (singular). The headline should read this way:

GOP panelists OK subpoenas in Solyndra case
