The Stairway to Nowhere
by Dan Walter
It was about 2 minutes until midnight on December 31, 2008 and there was a biting chill in the Aggieville night air. A large crowd had filled Moro Street for more than a city block, then overflowed out both north and south on Manhattan Avenue. The group included singles, couples, and families with young children – probably over 8,000 in all – and everyone seemed to be enjoying the music and festive atmosphere of this great new Manhattan, Kansas tradition: The Aggieville Ball Drop.
