Please update your Python 3 if you are not in a straightjacket

I suggest commenting this out and running normally in a console or Idle 
so you are guaranteed to see output, including error tracebacks. Only 
use cgi when this runs successfully in normal mode.

The ; is a SyntaxError and Python exits. See above.
