thank you Tom, it is the kind of answer that help me
i insert this and it is ok now:
forM_ bd_rows_WDS $ \(Only x) ->
      case x of
        Nothing -> putStrLn ("x =" ++ "NULL")
        Just x -> putStrLn $ ("x =" ++ Text.unpack x)
i had seen a such solution on web but thought the Maybe was the
solution, i hoped asked could avoid using sort of Null pointer as
mentioned in this article:
if someone else have a simpler solution email me
