If somebody finds a source, then they should directly put the verifiable information into an appropriate high level article. Also, if we don't delete, but do a merge, I would do a disambig instead of a redirect. It's not clear to me that Broadmoor, California is actually "Broadmoor village". This makes me think Broadmoor, California is the "Township of Broadmoor", which is unit of government immediately below the county (separate from any city). However a place called "Broadmoor village" might be inside of Daly City, California, which is presumably close, but maybe not the same thing as the Township. Plus the Broadmoor, California doesn't say "Village" or "Township", but just "census designated" place, which could mean it's unicorporated. I don't know. So, I say just delete this article, and people can put proper info from proper sources in proper places when they have the time to do things properly. --Rob (User:Thivierr) 19:15, 4 January 2006 (UTC) *'''merge''' as above.--Marvin147 (User:Marvin147) 03:34, 5 January 2006 (UTC) '''Michael P.
