This article is a perfect example of overcomplicating things and needlessly dividing an already small volume of information into even smaller bits and pieces, serving only to make the information harder to work on and navigate through. This article gives a very short blurb about each district, then links to a seperate article for each district, most of the which only contain a few additional sentences that would easily fit in the original article.

So what's my point? In this case, I propose we merge Cedar Grove, Wichita Gardens and Pike Creek into this article. Those articles contain very little information and don't need to stand on their own. Francis International Airport is significant enough to have it's own article, so that should be given a short description in this article with a {{main|article}} link to it.

At the same time, I think we should make some kind of policy on this issue - to keep related information like this together in one article rather than scattering it all over the place into dozens of stubs that will never be expanded (because there's often little or nothing more to write about the subject), and only giving individual list items their own articles if they're sufficiently large/detailed. I say so because this kind of thing has gotten out of hand, and this article is just one of scores of examples I've seen here. --MattyDienhoff 09:34, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
