Thanks! That's much better than my ugly code.

If one is going to print CHUNK_SIZE, 
one might as well do it outside the loop. 
I wanted to see the size of individual r's, 
particularly the last one which can be different 
than CHUNK_SIZE, hence the len(r) as follows. 

    print len(r), repr(r)

Wow, that was pretty stupid of me. Thanks for catching that.
