Python CSV

Can I retrieve the header with the data? Ex.) rows[0] gets the first row of data but not the header (field names)

I'd like to be able to get the column headers with whatever rows of data I select, but I don't know if that's possible.

According to the Python documentation for CSV, the reader object has a property name "fieldnames".
