When you first open a connection, you implicitly begin a transaction.
You need to call con.commit() before you close the connection, or your
transaction will be rolled back when you close() it.  If don't want to
bother with transaction handling, you can turn it off when you open
the connection, like this:
con = sqlite3.connect('myData', isolation_level=None)

See the Python Database API 2.0 PEP for more details about the
behavior required of DB-API 2.0 compliant interfaces:
