To answer Instapundit and City Journal‘s question: no, San Bernardino should not cease to exist. Unless, of course, you want some of my tax money to keep it alive. In that case? Kill it quick and move on.
Oh, wait, California: you can’t do anything quick in that state anymore. Guess they’re screwed, then.
PS: I have no idea how San Bernardino can get out from under its horrifically overgenerous pension/benefits obligations. I can suggest that it start figuring that out, though; hope that helps!
