Is the implication of what Cindy just sent us that "Katie, bar the door"

is associated with recent years more than with earlier this century?

I may be wrong, but I think it's an expression I've known all my life

and had not thought of as having had any kind of resurgence in popularity

(recent resurgence, that is -- it may well have resurged at some point

between the fifteenth and twentieth centuries).
