Securities and Exchange Commission chairwoman Mary Schapiro is recuperating and working at home after a “surgical procedure” Thursday, we’re told. Expected back on the job Wednesday.

Meanwhile, word is Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler was hospitalized after a fall at his home Sept. 9. He suffered four cracked ribs and a punctured lung, we hear. He’s been working from home and should be back in the office shortly.

It’s clearly good to be king, as Mel Brooks famously observed. Maybe not so great being chairman.
