Four years ago, one of the 2008 presidential race’s big battleground states was North Carolina, which President Obama carried by the narrowest of margins. That does not appear to be the case in 2012, so the campaigns are shifting attention to other swing states still up for grabs — including get-out-the-vote events with celebrity endorsers. Bruce Springsteen will be covering Ohio; and Monday night in Colorado (which the FiveThirtyEight polling site rates as a dead heat with Obama clinging to a razor-thin lead), Ryan Adams will play a show for Obama in my former hometown of Boulder. Somebody go, and report back!

…I think so anyway. Anyway, here’s where one of the copies of “Losering” that I signed at the Quail Ridge reading wound up –1,700 miles away from Raleigh in Boulder, Colo., one of my favorite towns. I especially like this because I used to live in Boulder and write for the Daily Camera, eons ago; that was my first job out of grad school, as well as my last one before coming to the News & Observer almost 22 years ago. Very kind of Camilla to “buy locally” from afar, and send back to Raleigh’s Quail Ridge to get an autographed copy.
They still have autographed copies at Quail Ridge (as well as The Regulator in Durham), Christmas is coming and they make a great gift. Just sayin’.
