I know Rick would greet warmly all those Americans who found their way to his bar in Casablanca - just making the trip would open up new perspectives for visitors who might not otherwise have thought of the impact U.S. policies in Iraq and the greater Middle East have on other countries in the region.
Rick tried to be cynical - "The problems of the world are not in my department" - but in the end he says to Ilsa, "I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world."
I think if Rick were here today he'd do his best to send visitors home inspired to tell the Rick's Café story to their friends and family as an illustration that the spirit of "Casablanca" is as true today as it was in 1942.
