Wow! I'm very impressed! You made it one tenth the size of my attempt! 
This is the kind of code we'd strive for.

I saw that it doesn't do wordwrap. I think wordwrap is useful, and for a 
simplest possible text morph, it can be mandatory. Doing this also fixes 
centered text, and text aligned to the right edge. So I did that, and I 
also made it play well inside a ScrollPane. I needed to add 3 additional 
methods. I also change the name to TextParagraphMorph. The result is 

I think this is a very good addition, and given that the regular 
TextModelMorph can be made read only (for apps requiring copy to 
clipboard), I think that my ReadOnlyTextMorph can (and should) be 
replaced by this. If you agree, and nobody complains, I'll later push it.

Thanks a lot!
