Dear Kim, Ryan, and Jon

Okay, The Diaper needs your help...that is if you're up for it. This morning we recieved a letter in the email from the city of East Lansing telling us that if we didn't remove all remaining fliers from last Saturdays show that we would be slapped with a $175 fine. At which point they would probably discover that we're illegally having house shows, breaking noise laws, serving beer to minors, etc... and we can't have that. So we can no longer flier town, except for inside a few businesses like FBC, In Flight, 7-11. So we need to reach the kids through emails.
You 3 are at atleast 75% of our shows and you know alot of other kids at our shows, more than we know. So I was hoping that if I sent you an update if you could forward it to kids that you know and that aren't already on our mailing list? Also post in any journals, communities you visit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Right now we're between a rock and a hard place and we're trying to have 5 more shows before Christmas vacation. After that we don't know what's in store for us. The Diaper might die with the year 2003. Please let me know if you can help!

Thanks for your time,

Josh Patrick Quinn
