If you don't know that Sorensen was a speechwriter, you can't really get it. If you do, you do. =)

TVC may mean:

* TVC (computer), a home computer made by the Hungarian company Videoton around 1986
* Cherry Capital Airport - IATA code for airport in Michigan, USA
* Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars - a fighting game
* BBC Television Centre - the BBC TeleVision Centre, London
* Televisió de Catalunya - Catalonia's public broadcasting network
* Television advertisement - TeleVision Commercial
* Thrust vector control - a method of steering aircraft and missiles
* Tinea versicolor - spots on the skin caused by Malassezia yeast
* Total Viable Count - a measure of microorganisms
* Traditional Values Coalition - Christian Right group in USA

Pity about Sorensen.
