Terry Baldwin: Who’s the new Hunter Thompson?

Note: I’m not sure I understand this fascinating post from Half Moon Bay-er Terry Baldwin—but I have to say that when I worked as a stringer for Time in San Francisco (when it was still a great magazine, with luminaries you would not believe) I was called the new Hunter Thompson.

Thompson, now gone, was an original and crazy-wild journalist who gave birth to what was labeled as “gonzo journalism.”. Really,  I never understood why anyone would compare “me” to Hunter Thompson, but I’ve been let loose yet! 


Story by Terry Baldwin

When I read “Note: I’m finding that while I feel compelled to “give-up” these stories, at times it’s painful, retching work. Who will understand? These stories come from a different time, 30 years ago, when “gonzo” journalist Hunter Thompson ruled–“ I had to comment IMHO Matt Taibbi is the new hunter s Thompson. His stuff is great. So is yours.


Thank You

Terry Baldwin

Thirty years ago Terry Baldwin (now longtime owner, along with talented wife, Eve, of the luxurious Mill Rose Inn, surrounded by lush rose gardens in Half Moon Bay–to die for) was planting up a storm at the magician’s house (the Channing & Corri Pollock home) overlooking the glorious Pacific in Moss Beach.
