Admiral Richard Gurnon explains when he realized he was in trouble with Arthur Desrocher, chairman of the board of trustees at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Sarah Schweitzer reports in today’s Globe:

The state Board of Education yesterday reinstated Gurnon as president of the academy. Let the doughnut-eating resume.
