It is pointed out that interacting double galaxies are the most common form of peculiar galaxy found in recent compilations, indicating that interactions which substantially alter a galaxy’s morphology are relatively common. Continuing effects of the encounters on the star formation rate may be revealing themselves in the Holmberg Effect, which is a strong color correlation and coupling of apparent Hubble types found among binary galaxies.
