I'm new to Python, so forgive me the lame question.

I have this code (following my signature) and i'm trying to get the 
value of "content" and insert it into a MySQL database.

I've been reading the docs in www.python.org, but i can't find a solution.

Can someone help me, please ?

Warm Regards,
