Twilight of the greats

"Twilight of the greats" is the title of Brian Appleyard's piece in the Sunday Times, which begins:

[2007] was a year in which a certain type of person died — Michelangelo Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman, Norman Mailer, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jean Baudrillard.

Still, life goes on.

From Heda to Hopper
One shouldn't gossip, but it looks like someone has a lot of dishes and laundry to do after New Year's Eve:
Willem Claesz Heda died 1680........
Still life goes on.

Not only that, certain people of a certain type didn't die in 2007.

I'm alive and I'm no type at all.

Didn't people not of a certain type also die in 2007, as they did in 2006 and years preceding, and will do so in 2008, and years following? Or am I missing something?
