Late night audiences were given two Kimmels on Monday night.
Jimmy Kimmel’s young son, Billy, made an appearance on his father’s late night broadcast, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” after undergoing a second heart surgery last week.
“Hi, I’m Jimmy. This is Billy,” Kimmel said holding his son, who was born in April with a serious heart issue. “He’s fine everybody. He may have pooped, but he’s fine.”
As he choked up during the show, the host joked that “Daddy cries on TV, but Billy doesn’t.”
Kimmel thanked the guest hosts who filled in for him last week while he took time off to care for Billy.
And he praised the “very bright and talented doctors and nurses” at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles who treated Billy and kids like him who, according to Kimmel, are having their health “especially threatened right now” because federal funding has run out for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The program covers about 9 million children whose parents usually earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford private health coverage. More than a million lower-income children are at risk of losing their health insurance next year if Congress doesn’t act soon.

As some background, we are intimately familiar with Aeroplan and Air Canada (OTCQX:ACDVF) not just as investors but as extraordinarily heavy consumers. As both an Air Canada top tier elite and Aeroplan top tier member I generate well in excess of 1.5 million Aeroplan miles annually, half from flying Air Canada and its partners and the other half from spending. As consumers we were concerned with Air Canada’s decision (though we expect more details to come out that will alleviate these concerns) but as investors we understand that the fundamental business model of mileage programs are incredibly attractive and that Aimia presents an incredibly rare and lucrative investment opportunity for the investor discerning enough to dig into the company.
