The expression is good English, you just have to put it in the right kind of sentence. The present century is the twenty-first, by the way.

If you have doubts on google, search the New York Times, an educated bunch:-)

It's all material checked for publication by their editors, AFAIK.

Or search from Google


the New York Times and The Atlantic sites with:

site:nytimes.com "what do you search"
or:
site:theatlantic.com "whatever you want to search"
(to search The Atlantic, a very good publication)

in the Google search box.
