I forget where the phrase comes from. It's probably Biblical...
"Fresh water from an unclean well..."
Basically it's a phrase which exposes some BS hypocritical stuff.
Sorta like this stuff I read from time to time about radio and my industry written by someone who doesn't work in the industry anymore, but for some reason, thinks they're an expert.
See, this dude, he likes to rip the industry apart, and basically, daily, say that radio, as we know it, is left for dead.
Then, he offers insights as to how to fix it, although he's not worked in radio for decades.
And then, the dude turns around and tries to act all motivational as if he's some guru who knows anything about motivation.
You know who I'm talking about.
He's not the Pope.
He's not an expert.
He's far from visionary and he's clearly anything but disruptive.
Most of what you read from this guy... is more fictional than a movie produced by Disney before the Pixar Braintrust took the studios over after the merger.
Walt Disney told better stories.
Always remember - those who can do, and those who can't, teach... or just spout BS from the sidelines while we who can - do.
At any rate, be careful drinking 'fresh water from an unclean well...' because you'll typically end up with a healthy case of the $hits.
