comment Lubavitch and Daf Yomi
@ShmuelBrin Good point. I've always taken it for-granted that it was was from Kehos (probably because of the fact that the front cover uses the same cover as the original dvar malchus - with the Kehos logo) - but now that you mention it - I'm not sure. I just looked at a booklet now, and I can't make out who the publisher is. I think I'll edit the Kehos bit out of the answer in the mean time though. Thanks.

comment Why is the Or Hachayim's yahrzeit in Luach Colel Chabad?
The Ohr HaChaim was the leader of the generation before the Baal Shem Tov. It's probably because of his connection with the Baal Shem Tov (for instance the famous story of how the Baal Shem Tov intended to meet with him in Eretz Yisrael) that it's mentioned in the calendar.

comment Who is the last prophet in Judaism?
@msh210 Actually Rambam says this explicitly: see Rambam Hilchot Tshuva Ch 9 Halach2: ... because the king who will arise from David's descendants will be a greater master of knowledge than Solomon and a great prophet, close to the level of Moses, our teacher...

hmm lots of Rabbis say that the belief is 'dangerously wrong' and other similar comments, but I have yet to see one source for this from Chazal/Shulchan Aruch. On the contrary - [as R. Soloveichik mentioned in his letter - ] there are many sources which reference the possibility of such a belief namely:the "Gemara in Sanhedrin, the Zohar, Abarbanel, Kisvei Arizal, S’dei Chemed, and other sources"... so where are the halachic sources which reject this??

@DoubleAA Furthermore it is clear that he opposed actions that "besmirch and damage the Lubavitch movement" - so I guess that would include boycotts etc like those mentioned in ms210's comments on the question

@DoubleAA I was referring to the historic context of the letter. [I don't exactly know the all the details here - but I'm pretty sure that] it came at a time when a professor by the name of Burger was trying hard to get organizations to boycott Chabad/mishechistim. According to the wikipedia article which you mentioned - the letter also seems to come a short time after the Rabbinical Council of America approved a resolution which seems to place a mishechist outside orthodox Judaism.
