I am writing regarding Chess Life's December 2008 cover article, The Grand master Diet. I am not, nor ever have been, a chess enthusiast. I don't know the difference between a bishop and a knight. However, my sweetheart is. Indeed, the man has a genuine passion for all things chess, and pores over each page of your magazine the minute it arrives. I affectionately refer to it as geek porn.
