Boulder Daily Camera's fourth most popular story doesn't exist -- or does it?

As you can see above, and in the full list below, the fourth most-viewed story on the Boulder Daily Camera website from a few moments ago apparently doesn't exist -- although maybe it does. How metaphysical! Here's an explanation by the perky yet mysterious error message:

Congratulations! You found a link we goofed up on, and as a result you're here, on the article-not-found page.
