I've been experimenting with Python and MySQLdb.

Previously I worked with Indesign and a custom CMS to import magazine 
articles via XML.
Scribus and Python I see allows me to link directly to the DB - which is 

However for the life of me I can't seem to get a grip on the MySQLdb API.

I am trying to fetch a record from the db, but I am uncertain of the syntax.

I've tried this:

cur.execute("""SELECT text FROM table WHERE id=8""")

But this does not seem to work.
I'm not exactly sure how fetchone() and fetchall() works in this case.

Can anyone enlighten me?
