a disturbing headline

"U.S. Royalty Plan to Give Windfall to Oil Companies"

Notice how "royalty" can either be a noun or an adjective. In fact, I think the headline makes much more sense grammatically with it as a noun, although if you read the article you'll see that it's an adjective, modifying "plan."

Either way, doesn't make me happy.
