In March 2002 he approached an employee at his local Target store and asked for a contribution to bring a Vietnam Memorial Wall exhibition to the area.He was turned down, and subsequently experienced, in his view, contradictory information and discourteous advice. As he result he launched a chain e-mail campaign to try to persuade people to boycott Target Stores.
