Best footnote ever?

From Justice Scalia's scathing dissent in Maryland v. King:
...I therefore dissent, and hope that today’s incursion upon the Fourth Amendment, like an earlier one,will some day be repudiated. 
6 Compare, New York v. Belton, 453 U. S. 454 (1981) (suspicionless search of a car permitted upon arrest of the driver), with Arizona v. Gant, 556 U. S. 332 (2009) (on second thought, no).
Nice.
