Announcement coming soon.  Mr Pardis confirmed Board is gonig outside the Company to fill  this position.Was told we could expect announcement    soon,  and most likely  before reserves report  in February. Penn West has long lived assets and a great   track record of replacing production. These two  itemes  could    propel  the price  very quickly  , like RIM   did.   Investors who were buying  into the pessimism  of RIm  missed the easy double  and we could see a repeat  here.  Bashing and analyst  downgrades are    for shaking weak  hands and codespeak for ACCUMULATION  TIME.
