San Bernardino County governments is leaving Riverside County governments behind in forming a highly dubious Ontario International Airport Authority.

At least that’s the way it appears this morning.

Yes, it’s a deliberate snub.

Blame San Bernardino County government officials previous criticism of various Riverside County actions. After all San Bernardino County is the pillar of financial management and decision-making.

The subsequent Riverside County response just threw gas on the fire.

Riverside County has a impeccable track record on keeping its house in order, or at least out of the media, and should be commended for consistently doing so.

San Bernardino County politicos can’t wait to torch someone or some plan in the press.

Chalk it up to leanred behavior.

Should LAX/Ontario International Airport ever make it back to local control it’ll need all the financial backing it can get to fill the black hole in subsidizing its operations.

It would seem that spreading the risk as far and wide as possible would be prudent.

But then again, the egos know best.
