The newsletter comes out every other day, and I think that most people who enjoy reading the forums here would like it! I use a ton of RHP games.
I'm not sure if it even came from a real game. I got it from an archived Chess Cafe article, and the author Dan Heisman attributes it to a Reinfeld book on tactics (he doesn't name the book though).
You can find the article here: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/heisman05.pdf
Also, I will give your newsletter a look. If there's one area of my game that desperately needs improvement, it's tactics.
