Why are the for loops further indented than the body of the while?  If
they are part of the while, "For i in range(1)" should line up with
"Last line in While."  If they are not part of the while, but come
after, then "For i in range(1)" should line up with "while this:".

Also, as James Stroud said, your for loop indexes are the same
variable.
