I liked this, from Justice Breyer's dissent:
Indeed, the consequences of the approach the Court takes today are serious. Yesterday, the plans under review were lawful. Today, they are not.

Yesterday, school boards had available to them a full range of means to combat segregated schools. Today, they do not.
