Bad news: Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz — the jovial Kings County booster whose accomplishments include installing a "Leaving Brooklyn, Oy Vey!" sign at the Williamsburg Bridge — suffered what we're told was a heart attack over the weekend or this morning. (His office is saying only that a stent was installed.

Good news: He's up and about and will be just fine.

Bad news: As a result, he was forced to miss the grand opening of the new Times Square Junior's.

That last bit breaks our heart, too.
