You top-posted.   Please type your response after whatever you're 
quoting.  In my case, I only need a portion of what you said, and my 
remarks are following it.

assert takes an expression, so the one above is just wrong.  
Fortunately, Python would tell you with
       SyntaxError: invalid syntax
