It would seem that the same mentality that demands students cut their hair short is pervasive within Galveston city government. The capuchin monkey is also known as the 'organ grinder monkey'. It has been domesticated for many years. It is also used as a service animal for immobile patients. Perhaps the unwarranted fears of city government should also extend to dogs and cats because sometimes they become feral and pose a danger to the community. What is more dangerous, a 5# monkey or a 100# dog?

Welcome to Texas, Margaret. The name of the state derives from a Caddo Indian word "Tejas" or "Taysha" which means "friend."
