I'm using the following code to delete records from a database; however, it always echos false...  I can't figure out what is going wrong.  The query works fine on it's own, so it must be my implementation.   I'm on joomla 1.5.
$db =&  JDatabase::getinstance($options1);
		if ($db->query($query)) {
		echo "false";
		} else {
		echo "true";
