State Senate President Emil Jones was hospitalized Monday after feeling tightness in his chest while working out. See, this is why Chicagoist doesn’t work out regularly.

In all seriousness, a minor blockage was detected in Jones’ right coronary artery, and he received angioplasty yesterday to remove the blockage. He will remain in the hospital for several days, but his spokeswoman said he is doing well.

Jones should make a full recovery and be back in action when the Senate is back in session on January 11.
