Norton, where are you when we need you? Remember Art Carney as the New York sewer worker who was the sidekick of bus driver Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason) in TV's long-running ''Honeymooners''? We wish he could have been there to greet the lord mayor of Sheffield when 80 guests recently enjoyed a buffet 70 feet down a new sewer in his English city.

We can see Ralph's face now as Norton comes up through the manhole with a canape in each hand and both pinkies curled. As Britons well know, there's such a thing as class.
