"_The U.S. government_ now expects to shutter at least 1,200 data centers…"

Is "Feds" unconsciously being construed as singular because "The U.S.
government" is singular? Or is this merely a typo?


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
