A Denny's restaurant manager who was stabbed repeatedly during a brazen daylight robbery was in critical condition last night at Maryland's Shock Trauma Center, authorities said. The manager, identified by police as Michaele Frederick of North East, walked out of the restaurant in the 8000 block of Belair Road about 9:30 a.m. to make a deposit at a bank, said Cpl. Michael Hill, a county police spokesman. The 51-year-old man had just opened the driver's door of his Chevrolet Tahoe when the robber approached and stabbed him, Hill said.

Four minutes after a 45-year- old Severn woman walked out of Denny's restaurant on Route 175, her mother walked in to look for her, a relative said. That was early Wednesday morning. Almost a week later, no one has heard from Valerie Ann Littleton, and her family believes she may have become the victim of a crime. "She vanished into thin air," her father, Kingsley Gorman, 70, said yesterday. "I'm convinced it was foul play." A Denny's employee found her pocketbook - filled with pictures of her 18- and 13-year-old daughters and personal documents including her driver's license - in a trash can at the restaurant the next morning.

Baltimore County police said yesterday that they were looking for a man who might have been involved in a shooting last week outside a restaurant on Reisterstown Road. A man was shot in the left shoulder outside a Denny's restaurant, police said, after he and a group of friends left the restaurant at 2:30 a.m. Aug. 27. In the parking lot, a man had approached the group and accused the victim of staring at his girlfriend, police said. An argument escalated into a fight, police said, and the man with the girlfriend pulled a handgun from his waistband and fired one shot at the victim.

A year ago, when six black Secret Service agents accused the Denny's restaurant in Annapolis of discrimination, reaction to the complaint split into two categories.There were those who believed that the agents experienced racial bias; after all, they were still waiting to be served an hour after arriving at the restaurant while their white colleagues, who had come with them, were finishing their breakfasts. There were also many who said they were sick and tired of hearing screams of "discrimination."

Thousands of discrimination complaints are filed every year. Some of them make the local news pages; most we never hear of. It takes a national cause celebre, such as the federal lawsuit involving six black Secret Service agents versus the Denny's restaurant in Annapolis, to wake us up to the fact that this country has far to go in race relations.The agents, assigned to protect President Clinton at the U.S. Naval Academy two months ago, sat for a full hour without being served while white customers all around them, including their own colleagues, were waited on.Just slow service, as Denny's claims?

The latest Denny's incident doesn't involve racism so much as some of the most dubious customer relations ever documented. The customer is always right, yes? Not in the case of Sheryl Neal and Cashmere Hardy, who refused to pay a $7.09 bill after what they say was a disgusting food experience and were carted off to jail as a result.Ms. Neal alleges that on July 3, 1992, she found a long hair in her waffles at the Denny's restaurant in Severn and sent them back. Something like this has happened before in thousands of establishments.
