March: Who's Up, Who's Down

| Boston Magazine |

WHO’S UP
Paul Reville  A-plus to the secretary of education after the Daily Beast ranked Bay State students the nation’s best.

Elyssa Spitzer  You’d think the Harvard junior (and junior Spitzer) would hate the media. Instead she’s become a star at the Crimson.

WHO’S DOWN
Ben Affleck  No Oscar nods for Ben this year, despite directing and starring in the hit movie The Town.

Sheriff James Cummings  Blame Jeff Perry for taking that long-vacant $110,000 job as Barnstable County “special sheriff.” But blame the guy who gave it to him more.
