Mexico, Illinois?[edit]

Why does this template include "Mexico" under incorporated areas, with a link that redirects to the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago? Englewood is not unincorporated and, as far as I know, is not widely referred to as "Mexico." Seems like a bit of xenophobic vandalism to me. I'm taking it out. Please discuss here if you believe it should be restored. Viciouslies (talk) 19:01, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

It's not vandalism: there was originally a separate article on Mexico, Illinois (based on an outdated source), and the link was added here at that time. It's just that it wasn't removed when Mexico was redirected to Englewood. Nyttend (talk) 19:52, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Can you give any examples of townships that you believe to be omitted here? It looks like some of these townships are what Ohio would call paper townships — existing officially but not in practice, since the entire township has been incorporated. Nyttend (talk) 19:55, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
