No mention of this anywhere

"For generations, immigrant groups have grappled with the American concept of housing for the elderly, tailoring it to meet their ethnic, cultural and religious needs. But for many Muslims, the idea of placing parents in facilities is still unthinkable, seen as a violation of a Koranic obligation to care for one's elderly relatives."

Liberals and conservatives agree: in this country, if you have the money, you pay someone to raise the kids and someone else to bury your parents.
