==About Stephen Kutzy Today ==
 +
Stephen Kutzy, born in West New York, NJ and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts, has been appointed Peace Corps Country Director in Turkmenistan.
 +

In 1974, after graduating from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in Political Science and Education, Stephen Kutzy joined the Peace Corps as a Volunteer. He spent the next two and a half years in Laghman, Afghanistan. Back then, there was no Internet access in Afghanistan; no cell phones. In fact, there were no phones at all. No electricity, no running-water either. Conventional communication by mail was slow—a Christmas present from is family arrived almost a year late.

After his time in the Peace Corps, Stephen traveled and worked on a kibbutz in the Negev Desert. It was here that he met his wife, Lynn Gardner. When he returned to the U.S., Kutzy taught at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He and Ms. Gardner married in 1978 and moved to Esfahan, Iran, where Stephen worked for Telemedia, Inc. and his wife Lynn taught at the University of Esfahan. The Iranian revolution forced an early return to the United States.

Stephen settled in Florida, where he worked in the homebuilding industry with US Homes in their management development program. He was recruited by Arthur Rutenberg Homes, a luxury custom home building company, where he worked as a project manager in Palm Beach County. Several years later, Sabatello Construction of Palm Beach Gardens hired him as a Director of Purchasing. He remained with Sabatello Companies for 15 years.

After his children had finished college, he contacted Millard Fuller of Habitat for Humanity and suggested the humanitarian agency consider an office in Afghanistan to help refugees in the war-weary country. In February 2004, Stephen began work as Country Director for Habitat for Humanity International in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan.

Connelly:“That’s a shame.”
 
 
 
DiCaprio: “Not really. Peace Corps types only stay around long enough
 
to realize they’re not helping anyone. Government only wants to stay
 
in power until they’ve stolen enough to go into exile somewhere else.
 
And the rebels, they’re not sure they want to take over, otherwise
 
they’d have to govern this mess. But TIA, right M’Ed?"

== Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel  (2009) ==
 
 
 
Time travel. It'll turn your brain into spaghetti if you let it. Best not to think about it. Best just to get on with the job in hand. Which is destroying the enemy before they're even born and have a chance to threaten us. We're expecting any resistance to be light, because the ancestors of our enemies have yet to evolve any thumbs... or indeed spines. But that does not change the fact that they may one day evolve into a species that may pose a threat to us. And for that reason, we are going to rain down a fiery death upon them that will turn the surface of their planet into a radioactive desert! Because we are the planetary peace corps! And that is what we do! Now, are you nappy-wearing motherfuckers ready to lock and load, and *get it on*?

That was the summer of 1963 - when everybody called me Baby, and it didn't occur to me to mind.

That was the summer we went to Kellerman's.

Violet, that is so cute! Now lemme tell you about me. My name is Wendy and I first moved to New York when I was 21 to be a dancer, but I broke my big toe and then I got knocked up by this actor who dumped me to join the Peace Corps, so for the last 16 years I been raising my daughter all by myself and then two weeks ago, she tells me that she is a bisexual and that she hates me more than any person on this planet.
