There ought to be a way to connect these souls -- Pittsburgh's human capital with its satellite job-providers.
And the result of that would be ... ?
"Wherever you go, and whatever you want to do, there are Pittsburghers who can help you."
The conversation at Antirust about Pittsburgh "authenticity" offers an interesting counterpoint; in the comments there, "authenticity" is local within Pittsburgh. "Pittsburgh" is represented by a neighborhood, a football field, a bar. (The comments about Heinz Field are noteworthy given that the stadium is basically brand new. Would Pittsburghers have said the same thing about Three Rivers? Forbes Field? Is it the place, or the team?) In diasporan terms, Pittsburgh represents itself, that is, Pittsburgh is its own best evidence of authenticity. I think that's where the Antirust conversation is going; "authenticity" is a construct -- physical (bar, stadium), metaphoric (the working class ethos), cultural (Pittsburghese) -- that brings Pittsburghers together.
