Did award for vindictiveness go elsewhere?

I have been following with great interest the awards SVM has been receiving. However, looking at the awards, I did not see one for vindictive articles. Did that possibly go to someone else?

I fail to understand your continued persecution of the Shipman family. These people did nothing but borrow money from a source that the city of Dixon deemed so reliable that they employed her for years in a position where she handled large sums of money.

Did the Shipmans think for a minute that the city of Dixon would hire a crook? I think not.

This loan was an in-good-faith loan made by a couple who have a spotless reputation. Why do you find it necessary to continue to persecute them? They are an outstanding and faith-filled people.

Please leave them in peace.
