The Boston Market worker arrived at the restaurant Sunday morning and saw something odd outside the employees entrance: a pair of pants and a wallet. Peering inside, the worker saw the man who had lost his pants: his boss. The 29-year-old manager was handcuffed to the sink, and duct tape had been placed across his eyes and mouth. The worker ran for help. What had happened about an hour earlier, Cheltenham Township police said yesterday, was an armed robbery at the Easton Road restaurant in which the thief made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

This week I reached out for a man-size, stick-to-your-ribs, double-sauced, extra-large meatloaf sandwich at Boston Market. Man, I can't remember the last time I had meatloaf. I could just kick myself, too. I love meatloaf. Who doesn't? It's one of the great comfort foods from our childhood. Meatloaf was the most trustworthy thing in the school cafeteria. At least it was the right color. Swanson's legendary meatloaf TV dinner belongs in the Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Right next to the rotating display of Larry King's wives.

Joseph "JoJo" Irving, one of a trio of armed robbers who last year terrorized employees of two City Avenue restaurants and a nearby bank, pleaded guilty yesterday to the crimes. Facing up to 110 years in prison, including a mandatory 25-year sentence, and a $1.5 million fine, Irving, 26, may be the only one of the trio who gets a "break. " His co-conspirators - rap artists Warren "Steady B" McGlone, 26, and Ernest "Snooka" Mark Canty, 23 - confessed to killing Police Officer Lauretha Vaird inside a Feltonville Bank on Jan. 2 with other accomplices.

The township's battle over building-code violations at the Media Shopping Center at Baltimore Pike and Beatty Road is headed for Common Pleas Court.

Media attorney Edward M. Gallagher, who represents Cedar Grove Associates, owner of the shopping center, said he has filed an appeal of the Township Zoning Hearing Board's April 28 decision ordering Cedar Grove to remedy the complaints.

The 2004 World Series had an average TV rating 23 percent higher than last year's Marlins-Yankees series and was the highest-rated World Series since 1999, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research released yesterday. Over its four games, the Red Sox-Cardinals series, on Fox, averaged a 15.8 rating and 25 share. That's about equal to the viewership of a hit show such as CSI - but, of course, a baseball series is sustained over much longer time. Each rating point equals just over one million viewers, and share is the percentage of televisions in use that are tuned to the program.

BACK AROUND 1999, my family dined out frequently at Boston Market. I was digging the place - best chicken-tortilla soup, great kids' meals, etc. It didn't occur to me that the main reason we liked it was that my wife is an introvert and there were never any other customers for us to worry about. I thought: How could anything go wrong with a friendly restaurant chain that serves good American food? Wrong! I bought 100 shares at about $13 per share as one of my first-ever stock investments.

What makes JetBlue think it can succeed where Southwest, AirTran, and Delta failed?

By Frederick Kaufman After global markets fell off a cliff in September 2008, a funny thing happened to McDonald's: Same-store sales rose 8 percent the next month. And remember Morgan Spurlock's damning 2004 documentary, Super Size Me , which painted the fast-food giant as the corroded heart of America's obesity crisis? Since then, the company's stock has nearly quadrupled. Mickey D's is a Wall Street darling, and a savvy customer, too, constantly tweaking providers to lower costs while passing the savings on to budget-conscious consumers.

Lauren Blake has a lot on her mind this time of year. As director of Paoli Presbyterian Church's Adopt-A-Family program, she is in charge of engineering a merry Christmas for nearly 200 families and organizing a festive dinner party for 850 guests. "My own husband and two kids are eating Boston Market this week, and they'll be eating Stouffer's next week, and they haven't seen me for I don't know how long, but it's all worth it," the Lionville resident said. The Adopt-A-Family program matches needy local families with groups and families that buy them Christmas presents.

The folks at McDonald's are betting they can revive the once-glamorous Boston Market chain, one of the best-known brand names in the country. On Wednesday, McDonald's announced its latest planned acquisition - the 751 Boston Markets, including its 55 restaurants in the Philadelphia area. Yesterday, McDonald's assured customers it wasn't changing the menu at Boston Market. And "everybody has a job," said McDonald's spokeswoman, Lisa Howard. She said any talk about store closings is premature.

From the "I don't quite get it" files is future girl of the moment Beth Orton (8 tonight at the Theater of the Living Arts, 334 South St., 215-922-1011). Orton first surfaced as the It Girl of the Chill-Out Room by warbling on a couple of Chemical Brothers records, and then in 1997, she was OK to bring home to the parents (and their rock critics) with the pleasantly overhyped "Trailer Park. " Now on Sarah McLachlan's label, "Central Reservation" is loved by Liliths and hipsters alike.

The name is not glamorous. In fact, "home replacement meals" sounds vaguely technical, as if it were one of those doodads you buy at Home Depot, in the ratchet and wrench aisle. Appetizing? Hardly. Yet HRM (as supermarket execs and culinary pros refer to it) is a trend so huge in the retail food world that many predict that kitchen life as we know it is ending. Nightly home cooking, many food gurus say, will go the way of vegetable gardens and home sewing - relegated to avocation and weekend hobby, retired as daily grind.
