[Tutor] Assigning each line of text to a separate variable

Hello, all. This is probably embarrassingly basic, but I haven't been 
able to find something that works.

I'm working on a script that needs to manipulate a list (not 'list' in 
the Python sense) of URLs returned in a server response. Right now, I'm 
stripping the XML tags from that response and assigning the resulting 
list of URLs to a variable so I can print it in the terminal. So when I 
do, say, 'print urls' I get something like this:


And so on. What I would _like_ to do is assign each line of that list to 
a separate variable, so that I can format my output to be more explicit; 
something like this:

	Link to Thing1: http://server.com/thing1
	Link to Thing2: http://server.com/thing2

And so on. I know this should be extremely easy, but I appear to be 
having some manner of mental block. Any and all guidance would be 
greatly appreciated; many thanks in advance.
