That's a very good question. Given Doc's earlier comment about "let's go communist in a capitalist way" I'd submit that Mr. Gray is being deliberately obtuse about that. In these early days of the Grand Alliance he may not want to rock any boats.
"I shrink from becoming an officious Samaritan." That's not Doc talking anymore, it's Harold Gray...t.
It also has a echo of Luther:

Lizzie is probably occupied this Friday with more pressing matters. And I believe Maine itself
might be in midst of Winter wrath such as arctic cold, howling winds, snow, ice storm-Izzy is still
around; perhaps WiFi failure. Or, a well deserved day off. Nothing like a lobster roll buttered with
a hot mug of tea, and a bowl filled to the brim with pineapple sliced squares. Then, of course, a
screening of Citizen Kane, gather ye rosebuds; or, Casablanca, always have Paris, damn-Rick nailed
it all down, checkmated libidinous inclination to spirit Ilsa to Dublin. Try as I do, conscience seared
thoroughly by Diogenes Bogart, ba***rd but blessed and reverend soul that he was, escape is simply,
I had a brief direct message exchange with Lizzie a few hours ago where she said her internet service had been out, but had just come back.

Such a day. But better late than never.....

...In Chicago, a feud has erupted between the city's two baseball clubs over where the National League Cubs will play its alloted schedule of night games. Cubs owner William Wrigley has requested permission to play night games at Comiskey Park from the American League White Sox, since his own Wrigley Field has no lights, but the White Sox are said to be "cool to the proposal," suggesting that if Chicago is to see more night baseball, the White Sox will schedule more games for themselves. American League president William Harridge also rebuffed the Cubs' proposal, noting that "the Cubs are a little late on the matter of night baseball. The late Lou Comiskey took a gamble when he spent more than $100,000 to equip his park with lights, and I should think the White Sox would want to reap the benefits of his venture."...
