    Paraphrase help...

    Can you paraphrase this for me:

    Mack and the boys at the Palace Flophouse need little and appreciate much, and whatever they do need they acquire by their cunning. Doc is happy with his station in life and in the community (but many worry about his being lonely without a companion). Lee Chong could very easily go after the people in Cannery Row and collect on the debts he is owed, but chooses to let the money come back to him gradually. "Henri the artist" is happy building his ever-changing boat and will continually dismantle it and start again so that he can continue building it. Cannery Row is content because it is not ambitious to be anything other than it is.

    isn't this (copied and pasted at that) from Wikipedia's analysis of "Cannery Row" ?
