Hi Ben. Sorry about the cut and paste job into my email. It is part of a 
larger script. It is actually all tabbed. This will give you a better idea:

		for f in file_names:
			current_file = os.path.basename(f)
			print 'Current File: %s' % current_file
		
			# Clean mac .DS_Store
			if current_file == '.DS_Store':
				print 'a DS_Store item encountered'
				os.remove(f)
