Polishing up my crystal ball, I'm going to guess you're using one of the
Python Database APIs (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0249/). And
that at some point, you tried to generate a cursor by doing:
curs = connection.cursor
curs = connection.cursor()
This left you with curs being (a reference to) the cursor function
itself, rather than what the function returns when it's called.
You own the oracle 20 minutes spent reading ESR's classic essay, "How To
Ask Questions The Smart Way" (http://tinyurl.com/cabqnop).
