I just happened to be looking at this article, and it struck me that it needs a great many more links. There are many perfectly relevant names, terms, etc., that could be linked, but aren't. For example: Texas; Mexico; war; peace treaty; annexation; independent republican Texas (i.e., the Republic of Texas); and that's just a casual glance at the first two paragraphs. One of the great advantages of CZ's being in a wiki form is that it allows one to quickly and easily pass from one topic to another, but without copious links, this can't happen. I am not at all in favor of links that are too common or irrelevant; for example, it would be silly to link "fought" in the first sentence to fighting, or "$15 million" to U.S. dollar. But linking to "war" in an article about a war is an excellent idea. And if that's an excellent idea, all the other links are recommendable, as well. --Larry Sanger 22:13, 19 February 2008 (CST)
I guess I have to update the talk page to update the tags.
