Excellent post again, Nola. As Jeanette said, there are good info dumps, but they are fairly rare. Relating this to a Christian fiction writer, this is where they relate a chunk of information from a book, or have the character sitting in church listening to a sermon--and relate the sermon. One of our upcoming authors did both things in her manuscript, although not in a big way. Both bits got the cut.
And speaking of great inflight safety videos, Virgin Australia's international safety video is really cute. Even has a cartoon appearance by Sir Richard Branson (sigh ... my hero.). ;-)
Anyway, this is another blog post to share.
