RC3 errors, Spitzer, dust lane

In inspecting the outputs of my automated RC3 atlas-making code, I have found many errors in the RC3 (or at least in our VAGC copy of it). This is perhaps not surprising, but I think we need to create and publish (on arXiv?) a corrected version. Unfortunately, I am only motivated to fix those parts that overlap the SDSS.

Morad and I discussed Spitzer proposals; we have outlined one to look at the star-formation fuel left in post-starburst galaxies.

I found this post-starburst galaxy (the small companion inside the bigger galaxy), that is associated with a galaxy with a minor-axis dust lane. Toomre tells me that minor-axis dust lanes are a sign of recent merging.
