Moles and Moles of Well....Molecules

Did you know that today is observed as Mole Day in the US and Canada? No, no, not a member of the Talpidae family, but the good old fashioned mole of molecular fame! Back in 1991, the National Mole Day Foundation was founded- my link is to the wiki for this, since sadly, on this Mole Day, the link to their site is down.
