Duane to Charlie: Stop calling me



The first 2-minute message from the campaign for Charlie Crist was a minor annoyance. Heck, Duane Hess can't even vote. He's a freshman at Hudson High School in Hernando County.

That was then. After roughly six weeks, the phone calls for Crist have escalated from once every couple days to seven this weekend alone.

Enough, said Duane's mother, Lynne. Her son recently received four calls during school and those daytime minutes count against his limit.
