‘Foreign’ is not a dirty word

Great Op-Ed in the Post-Gazette by Todd Malan on the issue of “foreign” companies bidding on the Turnpike:

Finally, if the bidding process is robust, the likely value of the lease would be so large that no company leading a consortium (U.S.-based or not) could avoid international participation in the funding group. Regardless of the nationality of the managing firm, the workers would be local, the investors would be from both the United States and abroad and the turnpike would stay where it is.
