Gloss

"One who comes to the Court must come to adore, not to protest. That's the new gloss on the First Amendment, Potter."
--William O. Douglas,
"The Court Years, 1939-1975: The Autobiography of William O. Douglas" (1981).  Said to Justice Potter Stewart on the arrest of peacefully protesting Vietnam War veterans on steps of the Supreme Court.
