Story Pitch: Talk Like a Pirate Day and Emergency Funds Really Are in Common

It's true that Captain Jack Sparrow probably doesn't worry about the recession, but for the rest of us, August's unemployment numbers and the market's recent behaviors can't be ignored.
September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day. The Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) suggests developing your own buried treasure, otherwise known as an emergency fund, in case of job loss, natural disaster (hurricane), or other unexpected event. Finances shouldn't make anyone want to walk the plank. A PICPA member can advise your audience on how much to put away and how to make that treasure grow.
