Griffey wants answers

Ken Griffey Jr. courageously approached a goup of White House staffers during the Reds' pre-Opening Day workout on Sunday at Great American Ball Park and said he had a few questions for President Bush.

Bush is throwing out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Monday's Opening Day game against the Chicago Cubs. Great American Ball Park was inundated on Sunday with secret service in preparation for the President's visit.

Griffey asked that he be allowed to speak to the President with the cameras off. The Reds outfielder had three questions for Bush:

1) Why are gas prices so high?

2) When are interest rates going down again?

3) Why are my taxes so high?

Good luck Junior.
