You've got a data inconsistancy here.  You give nine column names, but
only eight values.  It's impossible to tell which value belongs to which
column.  Which value is missing?

Python does not consider zero to be a null value.  (It will compare as
equal to False, but that's not the same.)

Are you sure refs is null?  According to the sample values you gave, refs
is 'Europe/Athens'.

gordon at    watch 'House', or a real serial killer to watch 'Dexter'.
