should/could be:

<form action="python:here.dbobs.delete_person_py" method="post"

should/could be:

  id = context.REQUEST.get('person_id')

No parameters in the Parameter List of the script.

In the ZSQL Method "Arguments" you must have "person_id" added.

If this is working I suggest you to look at Controller Page Template and
Controller Python Script. You can then do easy error checking and do
something *after* deletion (succesful or not).
